Pope St. Pius X Youth Awards
May 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Presentation of the Pope St. Pius X Youth Awards to young persons from parishes throughout the Diocese in recognition of their service to their parish. Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., will confer the awards in the context of a prayer service. Named for the pontiff who created the Fall River Diocese in 1904, the Pope St. Pius X Youth Awards were presented for the first time in 2001. The award honors the commitment and selflessness of teens towards Christ, His Church, and local parish communities in the Church. Recipients are nominated for the recognition by their pastors; recipients must be confirmed, at least a sophomore in high school, and no older than 19 years old. The award itself is a medal bearing an image of St. Pius X along with his motto, “Restore all things in Christ.”
