The Cathedral Parish believes in the value of Catholic education and is committed to assisting parishioners who choose a Catholic education for their children by receiving a $500 tuition scholarship to each child enrolled in a Springfield Catholic school in grades K-12.
The scholarship is eligible to any parishioner household who is registered and active. An active parishioner is defined as someone who regularly attends Mass on Sundays, supports the parish financially, and is active in the life of the parish. While all three of these qualifications are important, Sunday Mass participation is of the greatest importance because faith formation begins with participation at Sunday Mass. To be eligible as a parishioner household, the family must be registered and active parishioners for a minimum of six months before the application is made for the scholarship.
The scholarship will be paid directly to the school that the student attends. The funds will be attributed toward the 2018-2019 school year. The application will be available at the Parish Offices and posted online (spicathedral.org/scholarship) starting this week. Applications are DUE by March 15th. Cathedral will notify you when the scholarship is being sent to the receiving school. If you have any questions, please contact the Cathedral offices.
Jennifer Smith and SPARC receives a donation of $660.27 from the Cathedral Fr. Augustine Tolton Knights of Columbus Council 16126 with donations received from the Annual Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities conducted in the fall at White Oaks Mall. The funds will go to those with special needs who benefit from the many SPARC programs.
