Please consider making a donation to the Steubenville East Youth Conference scholarship fund. The conference offers wonderful opportunities for our teens to deepen their faith life together with other Catholic teens from around the Northeast. We have 90 students and chaperones who are attending this year, several of whom are in need of financial assistance. Fund raising events are planned, but further assistance is needed. The cost for one student to attend is $270.00.
If you are able to help, please mail your donations to:
St. Rose of Lima Parish, Attn: Rodd Blessey, 46 Church Hill Rd., CT 06470
or you can drop it by the Rectory Office. Thank you for your help!
