**ENDOWMENT FUND The Office of Religious Education has established an Endowment Fund to support the ongoing training and
formation of religious education leaders by making scholarships available for catechetical leaders to pursue graduate studies. It is
our hope that every Director of Religious Education and Director of Youth Ministry will be given the opportunity to receive a master’s
degree in Religious Education/Religious Studies. If you would like to contribute to this fund and be listed in the Congress Program
Book, please make your donation at any amount with registration. In addition, there will be a collection for this fund at the Saturday
evening liturgies.
