Faithful Catholic Families Scholarship Fund (In Memory of John and Rosemary Gorrell)

This unendowed fund provides scholarship assistance to Catholic families for one year who faithfully live and practice the Catholic faith and desire to have their children attend Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.

Parents are the “first heralds” for their children into the mysteries of the Faith. They should associate them from the tenderest years with the life of the Church.” (CCC 2225)

“As those first responsible for the education of their children, parents have the right to choose a school for them which corresponds to their own convictions. This right is fundamental. As far as possible parents have the duty of choosing schools that will best help them in their task as Christian educators.” (CCC 2229)

These scholarships will be awarded to families who faithfully attend Sunday Mass each week, who have a practice of prayer as a family, and who live the call of stewardship in their parish, the greater Catholic community of the Archdiocese, and the world.
