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.
A family of 7 struggled to pay tuition for their 2 children in a CEF school after the father was injured in a car accident, leaving him unable to work and with large medical expenses. Their income from the mother's retail job is not enough to cover living expenses and the medical bills.
A family of 3 recently joined a parish with a CEF school. The mother enrolled in RCIA and joined the Church, and the daughter received sacraments she previously missed. The daughter had some health concerns, resulting in large medical bills that they were unable to afford. The father has been out of work for six months, leaving the family with income only from the mother's housekeeping job. Their home is in foreclosure.
CEF’s Guardian Angel Fund recently provided short-term scholarship support for a family with three children after a decrease in the father’s pay combined with an increase in medical expenses for an elderly family member made it difficult for the family to keep current with their tuition payments.
CEF’s Guardian Angel Fund recently provided short-term scholarship assistance for a family with six children after the father’s job loss caused a decrease in their income. The father was able to find a new job, but at lower pay. The mother increased her work hours to help cover the difference, but the family has struggled to keep up with tuition payments during the transition. Five of the family’s children are attending CEF schools. The parents are active volunteers in the parish, and several of the children are regular altar servers.
