The Eagle of the Cross Awards
The “Eagle of the Cross” is an award given annually in the Diocese of Youngstown to outstanding juniors and seniors in high school, who show particular zeal in the improvement of their own parish ministry programs, high school ministry teams or youth work in general within the Diocese.
Nominees must be Catholic and exemplify the qualities of moral integrity, prayer, good works and Christian leadership. This award was created by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, and is the highest honor our diocese presents youth.
In the Diocese of Youngstown, a maximum of 3 awards per county for parish involvement and 2 awards per diocesan Catholic high school are awarded each year. A teen may only receive this award once from the diocese.
