February 22, 2019 – The Faith In Our Future Trustees approved a grant of $25,000 from the Global Faith and Education Fund to Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology. The grant will assist in starting a program for Catholic priests from Africa in the Ge’ez Rite who will study English and American culture to better minister to members of the Ge’ez Rite Catholic Church in the United States. A significant number of these members are refugees and immigrants in need of sacraments and ministry in their native Ge’ez Rite. There is a need for training priests in advance of the Vatican’s anticipated creation of an eparchy for the Ge’ez Rite in the United States.
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.
