These scholarships are available to 8th graders who are planning to attend a Catholic high school. These students were selected for their service to SSJ school and parish as well as the community at large.  The recipients each receive $8,000 in tuition assistance to attend a Catholic High School in the Diocese of Phoenix. Over 100 students apply annually each year and go through an extensive process in order to receive 1 of approximately 30 available awards.

We are so happy to let you know that our own Lori Irwin Sellers, SSJ Class of ‘73, is this year’s President of the SS. Simon & Jude Cathedral Conference of St. Vincent de Paul. Our Cathedral Conference SVdP Pantry is located on Maryland Avenue, near the school baseball fields, and is maintained for assisting those in need of food. St. Vincent de Paul can sometimes assist with travel vouchers or bus transport, as well as assess requests for rent or utilities assistance.

Lori loves her work with St. Vincent de Paul, and she is such a blessing to the organization.  We would love to encourage you, our SSJ community, to consider donating to the Pantry. Things they could use are:

  • Canned goods – fruits, vegetables, beans, soups, tuna
  • Peanut Butter
  • Rice and Beans
  • Bread
  • Cereal
  • Treats for the kids (cookies, cereal bars, etc.)
  • Cereal
  • Toiletries
  • Diapers

God bless you Lori, and your fellow Vincentians, for the good work you do, and thank you, to the SSJ community, for any help you can give!!
