The Pope John Paul II Award RTE Mass on Sunday 17th December 2017
On Sunday 17th December 2017, the Pope John Paul Award concluded their 10 years celebrations with a special Mass on RTE. Many dioceses from around the country who are involved in the JP II Award participated in the Mass which was celebrated by Bishop Donal McKeown, Bishop of Derry and Award Patron.
Dominic Cronin from the Patrician Academy, Mallow represented the Diocese of Cloyne. Dominic is currently doing the JP II Award in his home parish of Mourneabbey where he helps the sacristan at the weekend preparing for Mass and for the community side of the award he helps the Special Olympics at Mallow Swimming pool. Dominic read a prayer of the faithful at the Mass. Dominic was accompanied on his trip to Dublin with his sister Eileen, who completed the award in 2013 and his Mum Claire who was an Award leader in St Mary’s Secondary School Mass until recently. A sincere word of thanks to Dominic and his family for taking the time to travel to Dublin to represent the Diocese of Cloyne at this fantastic occasion.
