February 28, 2019 – The Faith In Our Future Trustees approved a grant of $25,000 from the Leaders of the Future Endowment Fund to the St. John Paul II Center of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. The grant will support moving the Lay Leadership Formation Program for Hispanic Catholics to the Mary Mother of the Church Pastoral Center. This move is projected to increase program enrollment by making formation programming more accessible to participants while also removing constraints of staff and space, which have resulted in a waiting list for enrollment. Access to additional formation staff will enrich and expand the curriculum to prepare students for a deeper role in ministry in their parishes.
The Faith In Our Future Trust, a 501(c)(3) Charitable Trust created in 2007, is thankful for gifts from parishioners throughout the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. The Trust has distributed over $57 million to date, with all grants restricted to providing support for Catholic Education and Faith Formation.
