The Sacred Heart Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to announce that $100,000 in scholarship awards for 2022 was approved at the March board meeting. The scholarship committee reviewed applications from eight different provinces. Eighty-eight MSC seminary students will receive financial assistance. This is possible only through the generosity of our supporters. This is the highest annual award that the Sacred Heart Foundation has dispensed in scholarships. Since its inception, the Sacred Heart Foundation has awarded over $2.24 million in scholarships to seminarians around the world.

The mission of the Sacred Heart Foundation is to raise funds to provide financial assistance for the education of future priests and brothers of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart.

Thank you for making these scholarships possible!

Cristian Puliche Golondrino and Tokabwebwe Kiaman

Getting to Know Those YOU Support

cristian

Cristian Puliche Golondrino is from Cajibio-Cauca, Colombia. Cristian tells us about what attracted him to the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart "I entered this community because I felt Heaven's call, and I wanted to be a missionary to spread the love of God to all men and women of good heart. I feel that the vocation to the religious life is the call that God has made to me and for that reason I am here in order to respond to him that loved me first..." In his free time, Cristian enjoys spending time with his large family. Cristian is in his second year of Theology.

tokab

Tokabwebwe Kiaman is from Tarawa, Republic of Karibati (an island in the central Pacific Ocean.) Tokabwebwe tells us about what attracted him to the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart "...First is about the community life, despite the diversity of people, we always live together in harmony and peace. We always have troubles but we solve it in a healthy way. Another is the brotherhood spirit that I experience in the life of the priests and the brothers. We have been taught in our novitiate that we all become MSCs first before we become a priest, meaning we are all the same...They really show it by calling each other brother rather than father..." In his free time, Tokabwebwe enjoys playing basketball and volleyball; some of his hobbies include playing guitar for the liturgy. Tokabwebwe is in his third year of Theology.

Please keep Cristian and Tokabwebwe as well as all our scholarship recipients in your prayers as they continue in their studies. Thank you for all your support. It is through your donations that we are able to provide the financial support they need.

Diego

Diego Zambrano Chavarria is from Chone, Ecuador. Diego tells us about what attracted him to the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart " The Congregation of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is an outgoing community evangelizing in the peripheries, countryside, jungle, etc. and is always at the service of the most marginalized of society, thus following the living example of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is interesting to see how people become familiar with the congregation, because they know that they will always be welcomed. The MSCs carry that spirit of family, where all are equal whether they are seminarians, priests or lay people and together they can share and do great things for the kingdom of God." In his free time, Diego enjoys reading and watching documentaries. Some of his hobbies include singing, listening to classical music, and playing his guitar. Diego is in his third year of Philosophy.

Please keep Br. James and Diego as well as all our scholarship recipients in your prayers as they continue in their studies. Thank you for all your support. It is through your donations that we are able to provide the financial support they need.
