  • November 23, 2012

The Franciscan Friars of the Atonement-Graymoor and The Catholic Register are proud to present the 2013 Student Writing Award.

The theme for the 2013 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity comes from cf. Micah 6:6-8 "What does God require of us?"

Students are invited to carefully reflect on the Scripture passage: cf. Micah 6: 6-8 and submit a 500-word essay that identifies: "Three areas which should be addressed as we work to achieve full and visible Christian unity."

2nd Place Prize: A Kobo Arc

The best essays will be edited by professional journalists and published in The Catholic Register and here at catholicregister.org.
