The Diocese of Fall River awards young people with the Pope Saint Pius X award to recognize young people in our Diocese who have excelled in their service to their Church. The award is named after Pope St. Pius X, founder of the Fall River Diocese in 1904, who had a great deal of devotion to the youth of the Church and all they had to offer. The award is a medal bearing an image of St. Pius X with his motto, “Restore all things in Christ,” recognizes the commitment and selfishness of teens towards Christ, His Church, and local parish communities.

We are very happy to announce that Breanna Ouellette has been awarded the St. Pius X Award this year, 2016. Breanna is an altar server in our parish. She volunteers her time and talent to our Faith Formation program. We are proud to have Breanna as the recipient from St. Joseph’s Parish this year. Breanna will receive her award at a ceremony at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption, Fall River, MA on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 7:00PM where Bishop Da Cunha will present the award to all the recipients from our Diocese.
