Dear Friends,
 
Having celebrated Catholic schools week at the end of January, I am reminded of the important role a Catholic education plays in our faith formation. Our parish believes in the power of Catholic religious education demonstrated through our commitment to these ministries: Parish School of Religion, RCIA, Adult Spiritual Formation, Pre-school, Elementary, Junior High, and High School. These ministries require significant financial resources, and we commit those resources because we believe there is no better investment in the future!

As we prepare for Lent, I am asking you to make a $2,000 or greater contribution to St. Vincent’s "Support a Student Fund." Many of our families have limited financial resources to educate their children in the Catholic faith at St. Vincent parish schools (PSR, elementary, junior high, high school). As a parish, we do not turn any family away because of financial limitations.

The financial needs of our students and their families whose religious education is unfunded or underfunded can easily exceed $100,000. Your contribution to the “Support a Student Fund” will be used exclusively for tuition for a family with financial struggles. Our families need your help!

Blessings,
Fr. Milton F. Ryan, C.M., Pastor
