Advent Appeal

Please consider helping our schools, our students, and our teachers this holiday season.  Ae we approach the new year, we have decided to focus on the goals of Catholic Education.  A blessing that unites us is the opportunity and challenge of passing on the faith to our children.  The Church in Wheeling is blessed to have some fine Catholic schools.  Central Catholic High School consistently equips our young people for the future.  We currently have over 135 students in our St, Vincent de Paul School in grade Pre K through 8 grade.  St. Vincent Parish School has enjoyed a reputation of being a school that provides an unmatched environment to learn, lead, and succeed.

Please help us raise $60,000 by the end of January.  Your gift will go to meet the following needs:

  • $31,000 will be used to meet our Parish obligations to Wheeling Central.
  • $19,000 will provide tuition assistance to needy families at St. Vincent de Paul Grade School
  • $10,000 will give a modest one-time bonus to the salaries of our grade school teachers.
  • Any funds raised over our goal of $60,000 will be added to the teacher’s bonuses.
  • If the goal is reached, we will have a celebratory luncheon for the students.

Please make checks out to SVS, and write “Missions that Matter” in the memo line.  Your gift will be free of Diocesan taxes.

Thank you in advance for your support!!

May you and your family have a Blessed Advent and Christmas Season!
