Papal Award - Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012 | Academic

Dear Old Georgians, former Parents and Friends of St George’s,

It was with much pride that at a celebration of the Mass last Friday, Archbishop Robert Ndlovu bestowed on outgoing Headmaster and OG Brendan Tiernan, the Papal Award “Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice” for his contribution to education in Zimbabwe.  

The award, which means “For the Church and for the Pope”, was established by Pope Leo XIII in 1888 to commemorate his golden jubilee.

Nowadays, the award is conferred on men and women for distinguished service to the Catholic Church by lay people and the Clergy, as and such, is the highest award available to the Laity from the Papacy.

Warmest congratulations and thanks to Brendan, on behalf of all at the College and within the wider family.
