Save the Date: Saint Francis of Assisi Tuition Assistance Mass and Gala: Thursday, October 2, 2014
Every Catholic child needs and deserves a Catholic education. However, many Catholic families face mounting economic pressures and do not have the option to consider a Catholic school education; they are financially unable to do so. To make Catholic education affordable, the Saint Francis of Assisi Tuition Assistance Trust, established in 2001, provides tuition assistance to Catholic families whose children attend Catholic schools in the Diocese of Tulsa. This past year, the Trust granted $515,000 to 353 families representing 542 students. However, 20% of those who qualified for financial assistance received none.
We need your help as we continue to offer tuition assistance to the many deserving students and families in our diocese. While the Trust has increased the level of assistance awarded over the years, the need for funding continues to exceed the money available. The annual Saint Francis of Assisi Gala is the primary fund-raising event for the Trust. We ask that you support the Trust by joining us at this year’s Saint Francis of Assisi Trust Gala on Thursday, October 2 at 7:00 p.m., Downtown Doubletree Hotel. Please make your reservation today by contacting Jan Hay in the Catholic Schools Office at 918.582.9177 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mass will be held at 5:30 p.m. on October 2 at Holy Family Cathedral, followed by the Gala at 7:00 p.m. at the Doubletree Hotel. Reservations are only needed to attend the Gala.
