PRIZEWINNERS...the St John Paul/St John XXIII Essay Project 2014...
The organisers of the 2014 TOWARDS ADVENT Festival have pleasure in announcing the winners of the St John Paul/St John XXIII Essay Project, organised in association with the Festival.
GEORGE EZEKIEL and MADDIE CARLING of St Mary's School, Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire. The prizes will be presented tomorrow (Sat Nov 22nd) at the Festival at Westminster Cathedral Hall by Mgr Keith Newton of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. George and Maddie win a cash prize of £50 each, plus a commemorative Missal and other book prizes.
Runner-up prizes were gained by other pupils at St Mary's, and by pupils at St Augustine's School, Ealing. These will be presented in ceremonies at their schools over the next few days.
The Project was open to pupils at Catholic secondary schools in the diocese of Westminster, to mark the canonisation of Saints John Paul and John XXIII. We were impressed by the standard of entries and are glad to have played a part in enabling young Catholics to mark this very special year in the life of the Church.
