As a donor to the Sister Yvonne Schafer Adopt-A-Student program for many years, I have several BIG reasons for continuing to give to this important effort.
1. This is Saint Michael’s and St. Joseph’s local mission, right here in our own backyard. I believe in giving where I am planted.
2. Many parishioners before me sacrificed and worked hard so my girls had a strong Christian/Catholic school to attend.
3. A high percentage of St. Michael’s students return to our diocese and become active members in their parishes. They are the future of The Church!
4. Return on investment is priceless!
I give to St. Michael’s School because I believe in the power of a high quality, Catholic focused education. Both faith and education have the power to change the world for the better. Our parents and grandparents understood that as they struggled to keep the school alive for the last 90 years. This is my way to ensure that their legacy continues, and future generations can benefit from our investment today.
