Rev. Terry Peacock Scholarship

The 2016 Deacon Terry Peacock Scholarship winners, taken at graduation last week. On the left is Natalie Tobin and on the right is Benjamin Rosenfeld. Both will attend St. Vincent - St. Mary High School in the fall.


St. Sebastian Knights of Columbus; Council #14255, has made a provision for two (2) $1,000 youth scholarships for graduating 8th grade parishioners of St. Sebastian Elementary School, Our Lady of the Elms Grade School, and PSR program. The scholarship may be used to further a catholic education at one of our area catholic high schools. The two scholarships; one for a young man, the other for a young woman, will be awarded for the 2015-2016 school year. St. Sebastian Knights of Columbus Council # 14255 voted unanimously to name the scholarship: The Deacon Terry Peacock - Knights of Columbus Youth Scholarship, in recognition of Deacon Terry's dedicated service to the young people of St. Sebastian parish.

Any graduating eight grade student from St. Sebastian School, Our Lady of the Elms Grade School, or participant in St. Sebastian Parish School of Religion (PSR), who wishes to further their catholic education at a local catholic high school.

Francis has talked about three important things since he has been pope:

    2. The need for mercy and forgiveness in the world, and

Remembering that the pope is both a religious leader and a political figure, what do you think he will talk about next? Why? How is this an important issue for you?
