Bishop Hugh presenting cross to Richard MargettsThe Rt Revd Hugh Nelson, Bishop of St Germans, presented 15 of the crosses to the very deserving recipients who came from across the diocese. 

The Cross of St Piran is an annual award which is presented to individuals who have gone above and beyond in their service. They are largely nominated by their peers and can be recognised for everything from length of service to specific projects.

Speaking after the service, Bishop Hugh said, “As I gave out the St Piran’s awards to our wonderful recipients, it struck me that each of them is a bright light, shining with love for God and people, in communities up and down Cornwall. I am so grateful for each of them, and for all the good they have each done – often quietly and in hidden ways.”
