A Parent's Mission Moment
"A few weeks ago, one of our school families shared with me their concern about affording a Catholic school education for their 3 children. Over the past 8 years, my wife Katie and I have walked through similar reflections as we started with one child and now have four children in our Catholic school. I shared that we consider our financial gifts such as tuition to be part of our stewardship (or tithe). This means we strive to give 10 percent of our family's gross income to support the needs of our community, which includes supporting the mission of our Catholic school.
We know that our community of Catholic parishes and donors reduce the cost of education by about 50 percent, and we have also been blessed to receive additional financial support from our school community to help cover the necessary costs of education.
This is where Community Supported Scholarships are intended to help. We are going to start our application this week and I encourage you to do the same. Our Duluth Catholic principals are ready to guide you through the process. You are a
gift to the Duluth Catholic School community and our family is blessed to be part of it."
