2018 Don Bosco Awards 


This year, the FYMO is organizing the 9th annual Don Bosco Youth Ministry Celebration, which will be held on Saturday, January 27th, 2018. As in previous years, the evening will include hors d’oeuvres, a talk and dance. 

At this celebration, there will be special awards for volunteers who have contributed significantly in the lives of youth and young adults at their parish and/or school. There are approximately twelve awards. In the past, award winners have been recognized for being a role model, an outstanding leader in Youth Ministry, a Chaplaincy Leader, a music minister and for having a high level of involvement in assisting parish and high school evangelization through word or action.

Is there someone in your ministry that you feel should be recognized for their contribution to your school or parish? If so, click on the button below to nominate him or her for an award.

Please note that current members of the Diocesan Youth Ministry Team and paid youth ministry workers are ineligible to receive a Don Bosco Award and that being nominated does not ensure the winning of an award.
