Archbishop Leo has posted a video message to congratulate senior pupils across the Archdiocese who have achieved their Pope Benedict XVI Caritas Award.

The award programme encourages and promotes the faith of young people by asking them to contribute to their church and community as examples of God's call of love.

Archbishop Leo said: "A total of two hundred and twenty two of you have participated in activities and demonstrated your faith to help others, such as reading at Mass, assisting at foodbanks, helping at children's liturgy or beijing involved in environmental projects in your local communities.

"I hope you build on this to bring your light and faith to the Church and your community. Congratulations, well done and God bless." (Video and picture gallery below.)
