With the compliments of the Apostolic Nunciature

Alice Carr, Frances Egan, Brian Duffy & John Giblin have been awarded Benemerenti Medals and Certificates for their services to the Parish and the Diocese of Galway.

They join Mary Farrelly, Sean Cleary, Pat Conroy and the late Stephen Collins.  

The Benemerenti Medal is the highest honour awarded by the Pope to lay persons in recognition of their long and exceptional service to the church.  

The medals have been blessed by Pope Francis and were forwarded to the parish through the Papal Nuncio.  Each medal is inscribed with the word “Benemerenti”, derived from the Latin, meaning ‘to a well deserved person’, and it hangs on a yellow and white ribbon in the Papal colours.
