  • Pope John Paul II Award for Justine Duffy

    Last Tuesday, 21th March, Justine Duffy received her Gold medal for the Pope John Paul Award. This ceremony took place in Armagh Cathedral. 
     
    IMG 1847
     
    The Pope John Paul II Award is an award created to commemorate the late Pope John Paul II who was so committed to young people and who had such belief and confidence in them. To achieve such a prestigious award Justine had to complete 20 weeks voluntary work in her local parish church and 20 weeks working on a social awareness topic for example charity work. She also had to produce a portfolio of evidence. While completing this award Justine also travelled to Lourdes on the local pilgrimage to assist sick people.
    Well done to Justine and Ms Gillan for guiding her through this process.
