World Youth Day 2008 in Australia

As you may be aware, Emily HURLEY will be attending World Youth Day 2008 in Australia.  In an effort to help her with the fund-raising necessary for her journey, an account has been set up at the Green Depot on Adelaide Street in Carbonear.  If you would like to donate the refund from your recyclables (beverage containers, bottles, etc.), just tell the staff at the depot to put it on Emily Hurley's account.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

Father Andrew Cushieri Award

In 1987, Father Andrew Cushieri, a professor at St. Augustine's Seminary, donated ten thousand dollars ($10,000) to our diocese and requested that the accumulated yearly interest would be awarded to a young person between the ages of seven (7) and eighteen (18).

The young person nominated must have been a student for at least part of the previous twelve month period in a primary, elementary, or high school within the Diocese of Grand Falls.  The young person(s) must have accomplished a humanitarian act towards another human being(s).

The guidelines are available at our local parish office.  As well, please feel free to check with the Youth Ministry Office at 709-489-4019 if you have any questions.

This year's winner of the Father Andrew Cushierii Award towards the tuition costs of post-secondary education is Jonathon REMEDIOS of St. Alphonsus Parish, Whitbourne. There were four nominees this year and we thank and congratulate all who were nominated. The award this year is $ 500.00
