The Pope John Paul II award ceremony took place this year on Tuesday Nov. 5th at 5.45pm in Tuam Cathedral. Over 200 young people received their awards this years with quite a few receiving their Papal Cross.
Archbishop Neary presented them with their awards and our special guest was Peter McConnell who climbed Mt. Everest earlier in the year. It was a great evening of celebration for our young people who do so very much in our church.
