Catholic New Yorkers who immigrated to the city from all over the world are honored in Brooklyn.

The Catholic Migrations Services hosted part of its 20th annual "Shining Stars" ceremony in Coney Island yesterday.

Immigrants were recognized for their service to churches and communities within Brooklyn and Queens.

That includes one woman who has spent more than a decade organizing concerts to raise money for relief efforts across the globe.

"They are people who in a special way have helped their community by doing something special be it by being a leader," said Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of the Brooklyn Diocese. They receive what we call a shining star award. It's a shining star with their name engraved on it so they're remembered by their community and we acknowledge them as a diocese." 

Honorees hailed from as far away as Guatemala, Poland, and India.
