Parishioners from Saint John Vianney Church in Gladwyne, Montgomery County, will host an inaugural induction ceremony for their 2012 Saint John Vianney Scholars. Bishop Michael Fitzgerald, who oversees Catholic education in the Archdiocese, will preside.

Saint John Vianney Parish

Since its official launch earlier this year, the program has recognized eight deserving students who currently attend an Archdiocesan parish elementary school with a $3,000 a year scholarship for four years to attend an Archdiocesan High School beginning in 2012-2013.

The 2012 scholars come from the following Catholic elementary schools in the city of Philadelphia: Holy Reedmer Parish School, Our Lady of Port Richmond Regional Catholic School, Saint Athanasius-Immaculate Conception School, Saint Martin de Porres Mission School, Saint Mary Interparochial School, Saint Peter the Apostle Parish School and Visitation B.V.M. Parish School.

The mission of the Saint John Vianney Scholars Program is to provide financial and academic support to children who are involved in their community and motivated to excel in school. The program hopes to provide many students with scholarships in the coming years as well as introduce this program to other parishes in the Archdiocese. Through their partnership with the Connelly Foundation, they are also able to provide the scholarship awardees with additional resources.

Following the ceremony there will be a reception hosted by the Saint John Vianney Scholars Board for all parishioners to meet the newly selected Saint John Vianney Scholars.
