As a young boy, I can still recall sitting next to my mother, flipping through the pages of the "Picture Book of Saints.” My favorite was John the Baptist.  He wore clothes made from camel's hair, roamed the desert and ate locusts for food. As a 7 yr old boy, that was pretty awesome!  

One of my mother’s favorites was St. Philip of Neri. She said when he died, his heart was so big, two of his ribs had broken just to make room for it! To my young mind it made sense mom would like Philip of Neri and his big ole heart. My mom was a nurse.

CEF’s Guardian Angel Fund recently provided scholarship assistance for a student after a decrease in the father’s income combined with a death in the family made it difficult for the family to make their tuition payments. The father is a seasonal worker who was out of work for several months following a job-related injury. The mother works three part-time jobs. The student’s grandparents had been helping pay tuition, but the grandfather passed away this spring following a long illness.

A family with two children in a CEF school recently received a Guardian Angel Fund scholarship from CEF after the mother was diagnosed with cancer. Her treatment schedule caused both parents to miss a significant amount of work, leading to a decrease in their income and difficulty in keeping up with their school tuition payments.
