Letter from the Pastor

Dear Friends,

The Educational Trust Fund (ETF) at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School is all about preserving the outstanding, Catholic education provided at our school. As Pastor, I’d like to remind you of the many ways, and combination of ways, you can support the ETF and Catholic education:

•    Attend the annual Benefit on Saturday evening, October 8, 2016 at the Michigan Union Rogel Ballroom. It’s a memorable evening and a wonderful way to connect with new and old friends.  Mary Karen McClellan is the Benefit chairperson.

•    Donate a special treasure to the Benefit auction and help advance the Trust Fund.

•    Become an individual or business sponsor to help underwrite the cost of the Benefit.

•    Join the ETF Leadership Circle and those who have made a multi-year pledge to the Trust Fund of a minimum of $1,000, annually, for five consecutive years. The efforts of this group will significantly grow the ETF corpus over time. 

More information on these opportunities may be found on this website. Please consider how you can help and contact me or Colleen Pierce at 734-821-2208 if you have questions or need additional information.

Yours in Christ,

Father James Conlon
