Parish Faith Formation Plans Pivot to Success During Pandemic
Saint Michael Parish in Greenville is known for providing life-long faith formation activities to the rural community it serves. Finding a way to keep in touch with a parish of over 1,250 families and provide Catholic faith resources to groups all at different stages of their faith life was challenging. A Catholic Foundation 2019 Education Grant enabled the purchase of a subscription to Flocknote/Word on Fire ENGAGE, an online communication and faith formation resource. Little did they know what a blessing it would become.
A Lasting Legacy
A bequest from John and Barbara Jacquel to Our Lady of Mercy Church in Harborcreek was used to create an endowment that benefits the parish ministries they were passionate about.
Making Christ Visible
In 2018, the Evangelization Endowment awarded a total of $35,742 in grants.
