“You are here today because you care deeply about bringing God’s love to our young people. Is there any greater calling? Is there any greater purpose in life than this?” Bishop Donald Kettler asked a crowd of about 350 people at Breakfast with the Bishop April 29 at the College of St. Benedict.
This year’s event in St. Joseph celebrated Catholic schools and educators while raising $43,725 in cash and pledge donations for The Catholic Foundation’s scholarship initiative, which supports Catholic students in kindergarten through eighth grade in the 29 Catholic schools in the Diocese of St. Cloud.
This event was the third of its kind. One held in May 2014 at the college raised $72,000 and a second in Fergus Falls in October collected $11,500.
