The Diocese of Greensburg has long recognized young men and women who are transitioning into adulthood in outstanding ways. Nominees for the Parish Youth Honors should demonstrate that they are living strong Catholic lives marked by active faith, moral integrity, leadership and service. They must be graduating high school seniors who have participated for at least three years in parish life or a youth ministry program in their parish or region. Bishop Edward C. Malesic will celebrate a eucharistic liturgy to recognize these youth awardees at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral, Greensburg, July 10, 2016. A reception will follow the Mass.
Clergy, permanent deacons, faith formation directors, and youth and young adult ministers are invited to nominate young people to receive this award. The nomination process will open in early May 2016.
