Cardinal Vincent with award winners from St Gregory's

Have you nominated someone for the Celebrating Young People Awards 2017? The closing date is this Friday, 13 October.

Do you know a young person promoting peace, or bringing people together across cultures or faiths? Recognise them by nominating them for the Jimmy Mizen Award.

Or that young person, perhaps a home carer, upholding the dignity of others. Nominate them for the St Josephine Bakhita award.

What about a young worker/volunteer in a project, service, or retreat centre? Maybe a student volunteering in school to support others with their work. Put their name forward for the Joseph Cardijn Award, for workers, volunteers and students.

And those many young people building community (Dorothy Day Award), standing with those in poverty (Cardinal Hume Award), or caring for creation (Barbara Ward Award). Check out the six youth awards and make your nomination.

There's also the CYMFed Award for an inspiring volunteer adult youth leader.

You could see your nominee receive an award at the ceremony in London's Leicester Square, on Thursday 23 November 2017. Our special guest, Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, will present the overall Pope Francis Award.

The deadline for nominations is Friday.
