Fr. John with Emmanuel at St. Mary's Cathedral. Congratulations Mannie!
Emmanuel Holmes received the award from Bishop da Cunha on May 10 at St. Mary's Cathedral.
The Pope St. Pius X Youth award is named after Pope St. Pius X, founder of the Fall River Diocese in 1904, who had a great deal of devotion to the youth of the Church and all they had to offer.
The award aims to recognize the commitment and selflessness of teens towards Christ, His Church, and local parish communities in the Church. Recipients are nominated by their pastor.
The medal they receive bears an image of St. Pius X along with his motto, “Restore all things in Christ.”
