Ministers of parish catechetical programs, youth ministry, adult faith formation, sacramental catechists and special religious faith formation are all part of this recognition.
The 5 year award is a medallion of the Archdiocese of San Francisco with engraved years of service.
10 years is an engraved 4”by 4” Black Marble with medallion

Youth Service Award
The Youth Service Award is for high school seniors who have exemplified a particularly strong dedication to serving your parish community and its programs (ie. Religious Education, Youth Ministry). These are the teens that you have seen outstanding leadership skills in and would like to specially honor at the Pius X Awards. Those on this form will be presented with a certificate of recognition. It would be a kind gesture to invite their parents and/or family members to the awards ceremony.
