Thomas Reynolds was awarded a citizenship award by Bishop Thomas McMahon at Brentwood Cathedral in recognition of his role as an altar-server.
Thomas is an altar-server in his local parish and at staff/student Masses every Friday at 8.15 during term-time. Thomas feels strongly about his faith and says it has provided him with a direction in his life.
As he says, “If you believe in God you find ways to be better.”
We believe that Thomas is an excellent example of a young man who puts his faith into practice by serving others and, as a result we nominated him for this award.
The photograph shows Thomas, with his award, accompanied by Miss Heaphy outside Brentwood Cathedral. He received his award from Bishop Thomas McMahon alongside pupils also receiving awards from 60 other schools in the diocese; including Thomas’ brother Euan, a pupil at St Alban’s. It was both a moving and inspirational occasion hearing of the fantastic work being carried out by our young people in Catholic schools.
