The K of C is sponsoring an essay contest which is open to all parishioners in grades 8 – 12.
This years theme: Discuss how trusting in God during a difficult time has helped you or someone you know find the strength and hope to endure it. Consider especially those times when it was a challenge to understand why something was happening. Consider also sharing any lessons about faith and hope you or someone you know may have learned from this experience. Winners at the Parish level will receive a cash prize (to be determined) and have their essay submitted to the District for additional competition.
