John Paul II Awards

John Paul II Awards

Each year the Diocese of Tucson recognizes teenagers who are active in their faith.  Award winners can be selected either from their home parish or from their school.  The John Paul II Award is one of the highest levels of recognition the Diocese has for youth in our community.  Award winners are selected in three areas of Christian life:
  • Prayer and Worship
  • Catechesis and Evangelization
  • Community Service and Social Justice
 
St. Augustine Catholic High School is proud to honor students who actively live their faith in our community.  Nominated by members of the faculty and selected by a faculty committee, students selected for this prestigious award are honored at a Diocesan dinner, their names are recorded at the Diocese, and they are recognized at the annual Awards Assembly at St. Augustine.  Students selected to receive the John Paull II Award are leaders among the many students who actively live their faith among their peers at school.
