Pope John Paul II Award

The Pope John Paul II Award, established in 1996, recognizes the stewardship exhibited by a Catholic layperson(s) of high moral character and exemplary values, who has rendered unselfish volunteer service to the institutions and programs of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. The presentation is made in the fall of each year at the Catholic Foundation's Annual Dinner.

The Pope John Paul II Award is given to a deserving person or couple who has significant volunteer service to Catholic institutions in the Archdiocese of New Orleans and has high moral character.
