Fr. John H. Luerman Scholarship

In 2006 we were pleased to announce that Fr. John Luerman, who served as our pastor for many years, generously endowed a scholarship fund to assist a graduating high school senior boy and girl from our parish with their expenses for further formal educational or training programs.  Future amounts will be determined by the yearly dividend from the scholarship endowment.  Those eligible are registered [individually or through their family] and, practicing Catholic members of our parish (i.e. regularly attending Mass here).  A key criterion will be the student’s level of parish involvement during high school.  Letters of recommendation will also be required from a teacher and an adult parishioner (not a family member).  The general level of their family’s involvement in St. Elizabeth’s will also be considered.
