Four Mount Carmel students were chosen as recipients for the St. Timothy Award. The annual award is given by the CYO/Youth and Young Adult Ministry to 23 teenagers for their volunteer service to their church, school, and community. Archbishop Gregory Aymond presented the awards at the CYO’s 59th Annual Leadership Celebration on July 11 at Divine Mercy Church in Kenner. This award is the highest honor a teenager can receive in the Archdiocese of New Orleans.

ABOUT THE ST. TIMOTHY AWARD
The St. Timothy Award is sponsored by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry. It is a national award that recognizes at the diocesan level youth who exemplify Christian service, Catholic leadership, and good moral standards. The recipients are not only outstanding in service to their church parish but also to the larger archdiocesan community. These individuals have displayed high ideals and have grown spiritually while offering their time and talents in the service of the church parish and the community at large.
