Making A Difference

Over 18 years ago, Jennifer Gasser approached Fr. Tim and me with a vision to start a scholarship for our high school seniors. Thank God that for the last 18 years this vision has become a reality. Our St. Patrick Youth scholarship program has awarded 72 recipients totaling $95,500 as to date.

Over the years these scholarship recipients have brought great honor to our parish as they journeyed through their lives. They have become air force pilots serving their country. They have entered the medical field serving in many capacities or have become outstanding businessmen and women. Many have started families raising their children in our Catholic traditions. What a wonderful testament to the great young people we have within our parish.

This scholarship has had its longevity thanks to you through your generosity. You have made a difference in these young peoples’ lives. On behalf of our board, I would like to convey our heart-felt thanks.
