Youth Awards

Please join us in congratulating four of our parishioners who received the following awards from Bishop Peter A. Libasci on World Youth Day, Sunday, October 28th, at St. Joseph Cathedral.

Sabelle Mecklenborg and Robert Cariello are the recipients of the St. Timothy Award. This award is the highest recognition from the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) for a diocese to confer on a high school student who lives as a disciple of Christ, setting a positive example for other youth; witnesses to their faith by exhibiting Catholic Morals and integrity; and demonstrates Gospel values through service to others.

Bonnie Brathwaite and Robert Simpson are the recipients of the Companions on the Journey Award. This award is the highest recognition from the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) for a diocese to confer on adults who demonstrate excellence in Youth Ministry; commitment to ongoing education and formation; longevity in ministry; commitment to young people; and outstanding leadership at the local and/or diocesan level.

The National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) provides the following awards as a service to dioceses to help promote and advocate for youth ministry leadership. The purpose of these awards is to recognize adults and youth who have contributed consistently and creatively on the parish/school and diocesan levels. The hope is that we will encourage young people and adults to serve the church in the area of youth ministry.
