Lynn Ryan Scholarship:
It was my pleasure to be present at the 10:30 AM Mass at St. Francis of Assisi Church on Sunday, October 10th, where our 8th grade student, Nick Casey, accepted a check for $500. Nick was chosen by Father Kiley to receive the Lynn Ryan Scholarship based on his academic record in grade 7 and his application of Christian values. We congratulate Nick, his family, his teachers and all who support Catholic education in our Diocese, especially the St. Francis parishioners who contribute annually to the Lynn Ryan Scholarship Fund.
