Holy Rosary College Mountbellew Receive Pope John Paul II Award

Fifty eight young people from twenty two parishes across the Diocese of Tuam were recently presented with the Pope John Paul II Award at a ceremony in the Cathedral of the Assumption, Tuam.

The guest of honour Gavin Duffy, Connacht and Ireland rugby player, presented the awards. The Pope John Paul II Award invites young people to commit to become involved in their local parish and community.

In his speech Gavin praised the young people for their dedication and commitment and urged them to continue to play an active role in the local parish communities.

The Award has three strands. The first two challenges young people to active involvement in their parish and in their local community. The third strand invites the young people to write a short reflection on how that involvement has helped them better understand the place faith has in their lives.

CEIST were delighted to learn that Holy Rosary College, Mountbellew, Co. Galway received the Award at the ceremony.
