The St. Jude the Apostle Medal was commissioned by the Diocese of St. Petersburg in 1999 at the request of Bishop Robert N. Lynch. The famous Enrico Manfrini of Milan, Italy designed the medal and Senesi (the foundry) of Milan, Italy cast it. It is given each year in the Diocese of St. Petersburg as a way to recognize those persons showing distinguished and outstanding service to their parish. This medal acknowledges the great gift of the Church, its people, exemplified in these individuals who in their generosity and love of their faith have greatly contributed to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their parish.
