JPII Award Ceremony 2019

Congratulations to the 422 students who were awarded their Pope John Paul II Award in Knock Basilica. It was an uplifting and inspiring evening listening to personal experiences from the Award, a beautiful rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge over Troubled Water”, and a wonderful performance by Tuam All-Stars to the Poor Clares’ song “Calm the Soul”. There’s no doubt but the archdiocese is teeming with talented young people who desire to make a difference in the world, and that desire was so actively encouraged and enabled by Award leaders in schools and parishes from Achill to Athenry. If this year’s celebration is anything to go by, our future is very bright indeed!
