Schools & Colleges

We’re thrilled to announce the continued opportunity to make a lasting impact on the lives of young people seeking a Catholic education. The Missionaries of the Precious Blood United States Province invites you to nominate a deserving student for a $1,000 scholarship to attend a Catholic elementary or high school. The objective of the initiative, chaired by Fr. Al Ebach, C.PP.S., is to support students who are eager to embrace the values and teachings of our faith in their educational journey. Applications are limited to one per member or Companion; family members are not eligible.

We understand the importance of providing access to Catholic education, which is why we’re also offering $10,000 grants to C.PP.S. parishes or ministry sites that sponsor primary or high schools. The funds will enable pastors or chaplains to award need-based scholarships directly to students, ensuring that financial barriers do not hinder students’ ability to receive a Catholic education.

As we embark on the mission to empower the next generation, we offer a prayer for those who attend Catholic schools:

“Lord, bless the students who walk the halls of Catholic schools, guide them in their pursuit of knowledge, and instill in them a deep love for You and Your teachings. Grant them strength to overcome challenges and wisdom to discern Your will in all things. May their education be a journey of faith, shaping them into compassionate leaders who will serve Your kingdom with humility and love. Amen.”

Members in ministry at a C.PP.S. parish with an associated parochial school or who are chaplains at a Catholic school will receive a letter and application. Applications are due on or before June 1.

Let us seize the opportunity to support our youth and to nurture their spiritual growth through the gift of Catholic education. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of countless students and contribute to the flourishing of our faith communities.

Yours in the Blood of Christ,

 Rev. Jeffrey Kirch, C.PP.S.

Our Missionaries currently serve in education ministry at Calumet College of St. Joseph, Saint Joseph’s College, and Catholic Theological Union.

Calumet College of St. Joseph

From its humble beginnings in a storefront in East Chicago, Ind., Calumet College of St. Joseph, now shared by the cities of Hammond and Whiting, Ind., is a small college known for its ethnically diverse student population. In fact, it is recognized as one of the most ethnically diverse small colleges in the United States.

With a current enrollment of 1,340, it serves many traditional and nontraditional students in its urban neighborhood, offering an education to single parents, blue-collar workers and others who hope to broaden their opportunities, but might not otherwise be able to afford the dream of a college education.

Saint Joseph’s College

Saint Joseph’s College was founded in 1889 when Bishop Joseph Dwenger, a C.PP.S. Missionary, encouraged his congregation to take on a college mission in a then-remote area in northwestern Indiana. Saint Joseph’s College educated thousands of students, encouraging both their academic and spiritual growth.

Saint Joseph’s College gained a national reputation for its innovative Core curriculum steeped in theology, philosophy and ethics that placed its students at home in the culture of Christ. It also fulfilled a unique role in the Diocese of Lafayette, Ind., as it offers training for ecclesial lay ministers.

Catholic Theological Union

Catholic Theological Union (CTU) in Chicago is the largest theological school in the United States. Priest and brother candidates in advanced formation with the Missionaries attend classes at CTU. Our Missionaries are currently on the CTU faculty, including Brother Antonio Sison, C.PP.S.
