The Office of Youth and Young Adult Accompaniment of the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown annually awards the Eagle of the Cross Award. The Eagle of the Cross, created by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) and introduced to the diocese in 1999, is given each year to a group of extraordinary high school upperclassmen who model the dedication, integrity, values and promise for Church and society.
The award is presented to teens in the six counties of the Diocese of Youngstown who model Christian discipleship and exemplify the qualities of moral integrity, prayer, good works and Christian leadership in their school and parish communities. While a limited number of recipients are chosen for the Eagle of the Cross Award, they represent many admirable young people around the diocese.
The Most Rev. David J. Bonnar, Bishop of the Diocese of Youngstown, will present the awards at a ceremony on Tuesday, April 30th, 2024 in the evening at Saint Columba Cathedral in Youngstown. A reception will follow in Saint Columba Hall.
