In celebration of National Catholic Schools Week and to continue to support the fine work being done in our schools, we are happy to announce the creation of the Ukrainian Catholic School Scholarship Fund. This fund will provide three annual scholarships to three students at each of our parochial elementary schools.
Can we count on your participation to make this a reality? We suggest three ways to support this fundraising event for the Scholarship Fund.
(1) Raffle – planned for spring 2019. Tickets are $10.00 each with a minimum of 2,500 tickets to be sold. Cash prize winnings: 1st place $5,000.00, 2nd place $3,000.00 and 3rd place $2,000.00.
(2) Donations can be made by local businesses, organizations or individuals
(3) Sponsor a Student in any of our three schools through local businesses, organizations or individuals
Tuition costs and fees, salaries, insurance, building maintenance, heat, water, education materials, etc. are on the rise. Current tuition costs for St. Nicholas School in Minersville is $2,750.00; at St. Nicholas School in Passaic is $3,450.00 and at Assumption School in Perth Amboy is $3,800.00.
Our goal is to collect $30,000.00 which will cover scholarships for three students at each of our three schools for a total of nine scholarships.
Many students have benefited from the education our schools have provided them. Not only in these three schools but also from schools who have unfortunately had to close over the years such as Immaculate Conception Cathedral School, St. Josaphat School and St. Nicholas School in Philadelphia, Holy Ghost School in Chester, St. John the Baptist School in Northampton, Transfiguration School in Shamokin, SS. Cyril & Methodius School in Olyphant, SS. Peter & Paul School in Wilkes-Barre, and St. John the Baptist School in Newark. It is fitting to keep the legacy of what our schools have accomplished and promote the good works they are currently doing. We must remember the words of this year’s National Schools Week theme, “Learn, Serve, Lead and Succeed”.
For additional scholarship and sponsorship information, contact the individual schools or Archeparchy directly as listed.
