BISHOP JAMES MOYNIHAN PRO VTA AWARD - Bishop Moynihan was a fearless leader in the pro-life movement. He was dedicated to building a Culture of Life, promoting Vocations, and strengthening Catholic Schools.

The scholarships will apply toward college tuition. Funds will be awarded based on submissions answering the following:
WHY ARE YOU PRO-LIFE AND HOW WILL YOU HELP BUILD A CULTURE OF LIFE?
Submissions may be video, essay, dance, song, music, pictures, or art. (Limited to 2 minutes or 500 words.) Work must be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 17th, 2017. Contest is open to all Catholic students who reside in and attend private or public schools in the Syracuse Diocese.
In the words of Pope Francis: "May the God of peace arouse in all an authentic desire for dialogue and reconciliation. Violence cannot be overcome with violence. Violence is overcome with peace." Please take a moment to pray and ponder this prayer from the Saint Mary's Press Catholic Youth Prayer Book titled: "There Is So Much": To Jesus, who calmed the stormy sea: There is so much pressure, there is so much hurt, there is so much Confusion, there is so much noise. Jesus, please calm this storm, so that I may sit peacefully in His boat with You. Amen.
Our next Coffee and Conversation will be held on Monday, November 6th, immediately following morning Mass. We'll be looking towards thanking God for the gifts He has given to us. Some of us will be planning trips to see loved ones, and others will welcome family and friends into their home. Hope to see you next month for some great coffee and conversation! All are welcome!
