Families must be practicing Catholics, active members at Saint Joseph Church and fulfill the need qualification. To demonstrate need, families must first complete the FACTS process. Families must also complete the Tuition Parishioner Discount agreement.

 

Recipients are required to join Msgr. Harris and Dr. and Mrs. Luker for a beginning of school year luncheon.
