EMMAUS ROAD SCHOLARSHIP
Help make an authentically Catholic education accessible and affordable for all! In late 2021, the Ohio Legislature passed a law creating a tax credit for qualified donations to scholarship granting organizations certified by the Ohio Attorney General. The Diocese of Columbus considers affordable access to a Catholic education a philanthropic priority so the Diocesan Education Corporation (dba Emmaus Road Scholarship Fund) was formed and certified as the first Scholarship Granting Organization in the state.

ST VINCENT DE PAUL PRAYER MINISTRY
The St Brendan SVDP conference has created a Prayer Ministry that taps into this mission. We pray daily not only for our benefactors (you), but also for those who we serve, and for those in our conference who do the groundwork and speak directly with those in our community who ask for our assistance. May your Advent and Christmas be blessed with many opportunities to see the Body of Christ at work. Thank you for joining your prayers with ours so we can all raise our eyes to Heaven with worthy satisfaction and confidently say, “Thy will be done.” If you feel the call to pray with us, please contact Heather Carrier at firstname.lastname@example.org to get directly connected with this ministry.
