Adult, Family, Parish, and Pastor Recognitions

Each year hundreds of Catholic youth earn their religious awards via programs administered by our committee and other adults throughout our Archdiocese.

Did you know that we also have awards for these dedicated adults? We do! Every year our committee acknowledges the time and dedication of these adults to our programs with a variety of awards.

Who nominates these wonderful adults and parishes for recognition?
YOU DO!
The nominations do not come from the committee, but from you, as an adult working with Catholic youth.

Please consider nominating adults, families, pastors, and parishes who make these programs happen for our youth. Our adults deserve recognition of their service, and we would love to properly congratulate them. 

Awards

All candidates must be of excellent character and exemplary in every way, and supported by parish and pastor.
