POPE JOHN PAUL II AWARD The Pope John Paul II awards were designed to encourage young people to become more actively involved in their parish and local community and to support them in deepening their faith. It is envisaged by the Steering Committee that the next group of parishes and schools will begin the awards over the coming months. All young people who wish to participate in the programme must register with the John Paul II committee and their work be overseen by a local Programme Awards Leader from the parish/school who acts as a liaison with the committee.
Further information about the awards and how they will operate within the diocese of Meath may be found online at http://thepopejohnpauliiawardd.com/meath/ or by contacting Sean on 086 830 0334.
