We are inviting young people to sign up for Year 6 of the Pope John Paul II Award in the Kildare Leighlin diocese. The award helps young people get involved in the life of their local parish and community.  It is for those in senior cycle of school or for school leavers aged 16 and over.

Through the award the teenagers will have the opportunity to get involved in various events, activities, ministry, training and trips over the year ahead.  Those who sign up are committing to work voluntary in their local parish and community for the year. Over the last 5 years we’ve had over 1,300 young people from the diocese participating in the awards.

Anyone interested can apply to take part by downloading an application form.  The closing date for applications is 7th November 2014.  Completed application forms should be forwarded to:
