One of our goals is to make all youth events accessible and welcoming to all young people. In fact, a significant part of the Youth Department budget goes to offsetting the cost of youth events to keep them more affordable for all families and young people.
All you have to do is contact the Youth Ministry Office before registering online, or if registering by mail, check the scholarship box on the registration form, get your priest to sign the form as well (thereby verifying your need), and then send in your payment and your church's payment. The Diocese will then pay for the final 1/3rd and that is it!
Here is an example:
The Scholarship Program is available for every youth event and is open to 6-12 grade participants and their adult sponsors. This process is confidential and has no bearing on past or future events or registrations.
If you have any questions or concerns about the program, or need to work out a different arrangement, please contact the Diocesan Office toll-free at 609-394-5281 ext. 10
