St. Thomas More Scholarships: Just a few days to go!
Greetings from St. Thomas More Parish, Scranton! We’ve tried to be respectful by not spamming you with continual reminders, but with just a few days left to go we thought it a reasonable time to update you on our progress toward a mutually beneficial ministry to college students.
Just to review: We hope to be able to offer two modest scholarships ($125 per month) to two Marywood University music students who would sing in our Parish Choir. This will help us build the men’s section of our choir, but more importantly — in keeping with our mission as an Ordinariate Parish to share the gifts of our tradition with the wider Church — it will enable us to expose two budding musicians to excellent music and liturgy and orthodox Catholic preaching they will take with them to the schools and churches they will serve throughout their careers.
We are using an online service called Kickstarter to gather pledges; to date, we have raised $800 (just over 1/3) toward our goal, for which we are deeply grateful! But here’s the catch: all funds must be raised by our cutoff date of September 1, or no funds are collected and the project will not proceed. So, if you feel called to help us share the beautiful traditions and robust teaching of our faith with college students in this way, click the link below to learn more about the project, and arrange your pledge:
Thank you so much for your consideration!
