The Caritas Awards were established in 2011 and were named in honour of Pope Benedict XVI, whose 2005 encyclical described Caritas as ‘the love which God lavishes upon us and which we in turn must share with others.’
450 people picked up the award in its first year, 900 people in 2013, and more than 1200 in 2014.
Pupils who received the award in 2015, were given a special blessing by Pope Francis. CLICK HERE to read more about this story.
