Let Your Light Shine:
Let Your Light Shine Scholarship Fund Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 speaks to us: To everything there is a season,and a time to every purpose under heaven: A time to be born,and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. In our faithful lives, we’ve heard this passage many times. Events occur that cause us to truly reflect on these poetic words. In 2003, God called home one of His angels. Audrey Ford, sister of Ashley and Nicholas Ford and daughter of Martin and Celine Ford, active St. John parishioners and Catholic educators. Audrey was just 9 years old when sudden illness claimed her young life. The sorrow that followed was unimaginable, for the Fords and for a community that cherishes its blessed members.
With God providing strength, hope blossomed from the pain. The Fords established the “Let Your Light Shine” scholarship fund. The intent of this scholarship is that many children benefit from the faith-filled education they value so deeply for their own children and that they live through their vocations. Funds from the Let Your Light Shine scholarship contributes to the tuition assistance of children who attend St. John the Baptist Catholic School. Parents seek assistance because they have lost their jobs, suffer medical crises or experience other challenges that impede their ability to provide their children a solid academic education in a faith-filled environment.
We invite you to consider donating to the “Let Your Light Shine” scholarship fund. If you wish to recognize a deceased family member, school alumnus or friend, please donate in their name. The "Let your Light Shine" scholarship is fed by generous parishioners, families, friends, and alumni. There are also occasionally opportunities to support the through concerts and other events. The “Let Your Light Shine” scholarship fund began with one little girl. Audrey's legacy shall live on through the lives of many. We need your assistance, no matter how great or small, to ensure that Catholic education is available to any family who desires it.
