Pope John Paul II Award

The award was created to commemorate the late Pope John Paul II who was so committed to young people and who had such a belief and confidence in them.

Through the Pope John Paul II Award young people in the Hexham and Newcastle Diocese will be enabled to take an active part in the life of their Church, in the life of their community and society, and also become more aware of the teaching and role of the Catholic Church in the world.  This will enable young people to engage at a deep level with Christ, whose body the Church is.

It will allow young people to understand that religion and faith are not just for learning, nor are they a list of rules but that they are for living.

Since the launch St Anthony’s Girls’ Catholic Academy students have been awarded the following:
