Parish Educational Endowment

About our Endowment

In 2000, under the leadership of Pastor Fr. Carl Morello, St. Paul established the Parish Educational Endowment Fund.  The goal of the fund is to help keep tuition as low as possible making Catholic education available to all families and to provide scholarships to well deserving and students in need and to assist with other educational needs of the parish. The fund began with a $10,000 donation from the school  walk-a-thon fundraiser.  The fund’s initial goal was to reach 1 million dollars and, until that goal was met, no monies were spent.
