General Announcements

New grant applications for parish funds are now available from the archdiocese

The archdiocesan Finance Office and Office of Stewardship and Development have consolidated and streamlined the process for awarding grant dollars to the parishes, schools and agencies of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

Through the generosity of the parishioners of the archdiocese, there are now three endowment funds that support an annual or twice-annual grant-awarding process.

Applications are now available for the grants.

The three endowments are:

  • Home Mission Endowment Fund, which is used to support parishes and schools that qualify as home missions;
  • Growth and Expansion Endowment Fund, which is used to support growth and expansion initiatives throughout the archdiocese in parishes, schools and agencies; and
  • James P. Scott Endowment Fund, made possible by a generous gift from James P. Scott, which will be used to support capital needs in the archdiocese.

Grant applications for the fall review process are due on Oct. 31.

For more information or to download the grant application form, log on to www.archindy.org/finance.

Send questions to Stacy Harris at sharris@archindy.org.

 

Catholic Charities to host ‘Intake Day’ for immigrants eligible for deferred action

Catholic Charities Immigration Legal Services and the Local Organizing Committee at St. Monica Parish in Indianapolis are hosting an “Intake Day” for immigrants eligible to apply for deferred action.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 6 in the cafeteria at St. Monica Parish, 6131 N. Michigan Road.

The Obama administration announced on June 15, 2012, that it will stop deporting young adults who came to the U.S. as children, and it will use its administrative authority to grant, on a case-by-case basis, deferred action and work authorization to young people.

Those who will be eligible for such deferred action for two years—subject to renewal—include people who arrived in the U.S. before age 16 and younger than 30, have been in the U.S. for at least five continuous years, graduated from a U.S. high school or earned a general education degree (GED) or served in the U.S. armed forces, and “have not been convicted of a felony offense, significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses or pose a threat to national security or public safety.”

There is no deadline to apply for deferred action.

Catholic Charities recommends that each person take their time, collect all of the required documents, and fill out the application completely and correctly.

(For more information about what to bring to the meeting, log on to www.archindy.org/cc/refugee/news.html. For questions, call 317-236-1596, the Spanish help line, or 317-236-1517, the English help line.)

 

St. John Academy alumnae will gather for Mass and reunion brunch on Oct. 14

The St. John Academy Alumnae Reunion will take place on Oct. 14 at St. John the Evangelist Church, 126 W. Georgia St., in Indianapolis.

The reunion will begin with Mass at 11 a.m. and continue with a brunch at the Indiana Convention Center across the street from the historic church.

Particular recognition will be given to the classes of 1942, 1947, 1952 and 1957 as well as all the early classes up to 1941.

Friends of the academy, including clergy, former students and spouses, are invited to attend the Mass and brunch.

St. John Academy was opened in 1859 adjacent to St. John the Evangelist Church, and was closed in 1959.

For more information, call Mary Jane (Maxwell) Biro at 317-780-7087.
