POPE JOHN PAUL AWARDS
Well done to Ruairi Tompkins, Sean Tompkins, Daisy Sharpe and Colm Keogh who received their John Paul Awards in Portlaoise from Bishop Nulty. The awards are very special and given to young people who take an active role in their parish and in activities which build social awareness. Congratulations indeed to Ben Meehan who received a gold award. To receive Gold Award participants must complete 1 hour per week for 20 weeks within the parish, become involved in a program of social awareness for the same period of time and complete a personal reflection piece. It was a huge occasion for all involved.
