Criterion staff report

The grants, awarded twice a year, are made available through the St. Francis Xavier Home Mission Endowment Fund, the Growth and Expansion Endowment Fund, the James P. Scott Endowment Fund and the Queen and Divine Mercy Fund. These grants were made possible through the generosity of archdiocesan parishioners, who set up the endowments.
