CCSTA has just completed three years of fundraising through our Toonies for Tuition campaign. Thanks to your generous donations, CCSTA was able to help families in need provide their children with the gift of Catholic education. Families of children in provinces with limited or no funding for Catholic education were grateful for the assistance we were able to provide in this regard.
From time to time we will pick excerpts from recipients’ letters to let readers know more about the people benefitting from the program, such as the letter below from Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
Over the past few years, a CCSTA bursary has been given to several students attending Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Corner Brook, NL. Last year’s recipients are typical of those who receive this very important assistance. Mrs. X, a mother of two in the school, is very grateful and expresses her feelings openly among friends but for obvious reasons would not like to publicly reveal her identity.
Mrs. X has two daughters attending Immaculate Heart of Mary. Now raising her family on her own, she has strong Catholic beliefs and is determined to have her children educated in a Catholic environment. Both girls have benefited greatly from attending IHM – they have received the Sacraments and show signs of great growth in self-esteem and self-confidence. They are members of the school choir. Mrs. X is very appreciative of the CCSTA bursary program and assures all contributors that their support is well-used.
