Award Leader Gathering

Training for all Award Leaders (current, new and potential) at school/parish level will take place on Tuesday October 3rd @7:00pm in Holy Family Secondary School, Newbridge.

A JPII Award Leader should simply be someone who is willing to help and encourage the young people in their parish ministry & social involvement throughout the year. Parishes and schools are asked to please send at least one representative to this gathering. Once an award leader is in place to guide the JPII group you should see the significant positive effects of their involvement on your parish. Please let Christine in FDS know on 059 91 64084 on/before the day of training if you can attend.
