CHURCH IN DETROIT STARTS PROGRAM TO HELP NEEDY STUDENTS

          DETROIT, 6 (NE) "For many of these children, options are limited. How can something be done to make a difference for them? I have long prayed and even cried over these questions," recently said Cardinal Adam Maida, Archbishop of Detroit. The answer has come in the form of a scholarship program to help needy students afford private school in Detroit, Hamtramck and Highland Park.

          The program will be administered by a Catholic foundation. It currently counts with a 10 million-dollar fund that will be fully destined for the education of children. Students with a grant can choose from 170 Catholic schools in the area or other private schools. This effort is part of the archdiocese's effort to give priority to Catholic education, which has been amply promoted by the Cardinal Maida.
