Bishop Stang High School, a diocesan, co-educational, college preparatory school located on the Southcoast, announced five students have received the Pope Pius X award for their demonstrated commitment to Christ and His Church. Anthony Mahoney-Pacheco (Junior), Shashawna Santiago-Amaral (Senior), Frederick Kalisz III (Junior), Shaelyn Calvey (Senior) and Matt Gagnon (Class of 2013) were recognized by the Diocese at the Cathedral of St. Mary’s in Fall River at a May 6th celebration.

“It is a true testament of our community that five Bishop Stang students were selected for a Pope Pius X award,” said Amanda Tarantelli, Director of Campus Ministry at Bishop Stang High School. “The award is one more example of our students living their faith and being a visible sign to their beliefs.”

This is the 12th annual Pope Pius X award ceremony for the Diocese. The award was established in 2002 by Cardinal Sean O’Malley after Pope Pius X who is the founder of the Diocese. Recipients are nominated by their pastors, and must be between a sophomore in high school and no older than 19.
