Local man recognized for charitable work

Steven G. Caron of Andover was recognized for his leadership during the annual meeting of the Order of Malta’s American Association on Nov. 15 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York.

Caron received a President’s Achievement Award from Jack E. Pohrer, president of the association.

The Order of Malta’s National Work in the U.S. is Prison Ministry. In 2009, Caron founded a quarterly publication called The Serving Brother, which offers Catholic spirituality to prisoners. Originally designed to serve those imprisoned in the metropolitan area of Cardinal Sean O’Malley, within months, the publication became widely distributed throughout the northeastern U.S.

A Canadian edition has since been created and distribution has advanced throughout the southeastern and western U.S. In addition, copies are distributed in Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and to English-speaking prisoners in Latin America. Currently, more than 30,000 copies are shipped to an estimated 600-plus correctional institutions.

Caron now serves as the imprint’s publisher and chairman of its editorial board.

In 2007, Caron was invested as a Knight of Malta in St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. He and his wife, Evelyn L. Caron, have four children. They are members of St. Augustine Church in Andover.

A CPA, Caron is a graduate of North Andover High School and received his accounting degree from UMass Amherst and his Master of Business Administration in finance from Boston College. He is the managing director of Old School Capital, an investment advisory firm based in Andover.
