CEF's Guardian Angel Fund recently helped two siblings remain in the CEF school they have attended since preschool after an injury kept their father out of work for a year. Due to medical issues, their mother has been unable to work consistently, and without the father's income the family was unable to afford their tuition payments. They sold their home near the school and moved to another home further away in an effort to reduce their expenses, but were unable to keep up with the housing costs and moved in with a relative.
The Guardian Angel Fund recently provided scholarship assistance allowing two siblings to remain in their CEF school after their parents separated and their grandmother became ill, leading to a decrease in their family's income.

CEF's Guardian Angel Fund recently provided scholarship assistance for an 8th grade student who has had significant health issues, resulting in surgery, hospitalization and large medical expenses. Shortly after the student's surgery, her mother became seriously ill and was unable to work.

As a result of the medical expenses and decreased income, the family was unable to pay the daughter's tuition.
The Catechism notes: “The whole life of the Church benefits from the mysterious and powerful help of the angels.” I cannot help but reflect upon that statement and how appropriate it is to CEF’s Guardian Angel Fund.
