It is very important to have faith education in every parish because everyone struggles in life. Having a youth group that can bring you back up and remind you of your faith is very important. It has made me stronger. Our faith is always going to be there to help us in life. Without faith, where do we go?

Every child who wants a Catholic school education should be able to get one and every child should be able to learn about Jesus regardless of their parish’s financial resources.

When I wanted to apply to Tri-Cities Prep, my parents couldn’t support me financially. Of course, thanks to the Central Washington Catholic Foundation, I was able to receive that financial support. I have a new found faith in God.

A Catholic education is instrumental in teaching much needed social principals, a character building process and development of thought.  I am proud to support the Central Washington Catholic Foundation, doing so much for so many!

The Catholic Foundation grant has been such a blessing to our parish. We are a very small parish and a very poor parish. So through the grant, the first thing we needed to do was get bilingual books!

I know that there are kids who also want a Catholic education, whose families don’t have the means to provide what's needed for them to attend a Catholic school. So it’s wonderful that the foundation is available to help kids that really want to deepen their Catholic faith understanding, and their love of Jesus, and their love of the Church.

I support the Central Washington Catholic Foundation because of my strong belief in its mission to provide and uphold Catholic education throughout the Diocese of Yakima. All who seek to learn about our Catholic faith in our schools and in our parishes must be served. The Foundation proves instrumental in achieving that goal.

Finally our dream came true. We are very thankful to Central Washington Catholic Foundation for all their support. It really makes a difference in our life. Now it’s a whole new world for all of us, and our son. Thank you very much.
