Scholarships

It is our goal that no child, youth, college student, or young adult miss an event because of financial reasons. 

We offer some scholarship assistance for all of our programs and raise funds for this purpose. 

Ideally we split the cost evenly into thirds between the family, the parish, and the diocesan scholarship funds. We work with congregations to make sure their young people have funding to attend events and camps.
