Matthew KULDELL MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP-Matthew Kuldell was a 7-year-old member of our parish who died several years ago. As a memorial, his parents established and funded a scholarship in his name to assist in the education of students in our parish regardless of whether they were academic “top performers.”  Rather, the scholarship was intended for students who strive to do the best they can and have made contributions to our parish life.  It was also designed to help students who have overcome some challenge: death in the family, family job loss, bullying, ADHD, and autism are just examples.

Today the purpose of this scholarship remains the same and is funded through your generous donations and the sale of Gertrude Hawk Chocolates.  It’s easy to participate and just in time for the Holidays! You can shop the Gertrude Hawk catalog available in the Gathering Space OR shop the online catalog at: https://fundraising.gertrudehawkchocolates.com.  For questions, please contact LaVerne Stevens at lavurn@verizon.net.
