Several eighth-grade students from St. Jude School in Mountain Top, along with many eighth- and 12-grade students from across the diocese, were recognized for their outstanding service and dedication to their school and parish community.

The Mass focused on the gifts the students have been given and the need for those gifts in our world. The Bishop lauded their accomplishments and challenged them to continue to make a difference in the world in which we live. Shown are, first row: Kathryn McIngvale, Aubrey Jumper and Edward Patrick.
