The Bishop Chanche Mission Award ceremony will take place on February 22, 2020 at the Cathedral of St. Peter the Apostle at 1 p.m. Named for Mississippi’s first Catholic bishop, nominees should be lay Catholics who have shown exemplary service at the parish and/or diocesan level in the areas of evangelization, faith formation and service to the community.

Pastors, Associates and Lay Ecclesial Ministers may nominate ONE person or a married couple per year from their parish or mission to receive the award.
