Educate a Child Fund

Much has changed since the Holy Faith Sisters of Ireland welcomed the first students to Saint Hilary Catholic School in 1963. The Sisters worked tirelessly for little or no compensation. Since their departure, the competitive salaries required of our equally committed faculty have increased thus making it more difficult for some families to afford Catholic school tuition. In order to maintain an enduring legacy of Catholic education to those in need, we ask the community to support our Educate A Child Fund. This fund helps us to support not only tuition expenses, but essential fees and after school enrichment classes.

What's New?

Since announcing this fundraising request, two parishioners have stepped forward to offer a matching fund of $50,000! That means that any contribution of $1,000 or more will be matched 1:1. Naturally, any donations less than $1,000, will be happily received and directed to the Educate A Child Fund.

Will you please consider giving the gift of a Saint Hilary education? An education that will help to produce students to become active, productive, faith-filled and caring members of our community and the world?

Thank you for your consideration in joining us in making a difference in the lives of needy, but worthy, children.

Peace and prayers,
Father Brown, Pastor
