CARITAS AWARD CEREMONY
Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow
Saturday 31st May 2014, 2pm.

1,000 young people from secondary schools across Scotland are being honoured by 
the Catholic Church in the presentation of the CARITAS AWARD.  
 
Pope Francis has sent a special message of encouragement to all those are 
receiving the award, recognising that many young people are “like street 
preachers . . . taking up various forms of activism and volunteer work” and he 
prays that they “may continue to courageously witness to the love that God has 
for every individual person.”
 
The award ceremony is being held in the Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow, with a 
capacity audience of 3000.  Joining six of the Scottish Bishops to present 
Caritas Award medals will be: Rt. Rev. John Chalmers, Moderator of the General 
Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Minister for 
Community Safety and Legal Affairs; the Rt. Hon. Frank Mulholland Q.C., the Lord 
Advocate, among others.
 
The award winners have gained the Caritas Award by volunteering time in their 
school and faith communities across Scotland, offering practical support to 
others, and by demonstrating that these actions of loving service are inspired 
by faith in God.  The testimonies of many of these young people demonstrate the 
very significant impact of their involvement in the Caritas Award on their 
lives.  Coming from various faith traditions and none, all of the award 
recipients have demonstrated that showing loving kindness to others has caused 
them to realise the powerful impact of even the smallest acts of love.  
 
Hosting the ceremony, husband and wife David & Maura Currie will introduce 
performances from comedian Des Clarke and X Factor 2013 finalist Nicholas 
McDonald.
