Today’s post is not going to be my usual ramblings and random thoughts but rather a plea for your assistance. Please pass this along to your friends, family and even your parish family to help me make my entrance to the SMMC a reality.
I have sold my car in an effort to maximize the amount of money I put toward my student loans and I have been making and selling rosaries at my local catholic store in an effort to raise more funds. Unfortunately I need to do even more in order to make my entrance to my future community a reality. Thankfully, the Labouré Society is working with me and I plan on applying to the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations for assistance.
The Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations is a non-profit organization that helps those entering religious life pay their student loan debt, this is a grant program that relies heavily on donations and as such they cannot help everyone; last year I applied and could not be granted due to the heavy demands. I am going to reapply again and hope to be selected as a grantee; In addition to the amount of debt an applicant has, one aspect they look at is how active the applicant is in helping themselves.
This is where you can help! I am looking for as many folks who are able to donate here in my name! ANY amount is perfect, $1, $5, $10, $100 or whatever you can do! If you are not able to help, please pass this on and ask your friends and family to pass it on to whomever they know of who wish to support vocations in the Church. In addition to asking for you financial support, I beg your continued prayers as I continue my walk with God.
If you can think of any other resource that I might look into for further assistance, please leave me a comment or send me an email with some additional information. I am trying to get some assistance from my local K of C and Serra club. Unfortunately there is not much they can do financially but they have promised to help with fundraising by assisting with dinners etc. Thank you for your time and prayers! Remember, donations to the Labouré Society are tax deductible. If you wish to donate, please Click here now to do so! Don’t forget to put my name, Dyna in the comments section!

God Bless you and your family!Hopeful
