A new endeavor is making it possible for families that want to send their children to Catholic school but need a little help. The Mustard Seed Foundation, which was started in 2018 by Dan and Tammi Nester, will award $7,000 in scholarships for the 2019/20 school year. The scholarships will initially be for parishioners at Blessed Sacrament in Toledo, St. Joseph’s in Maumee, and historic St. Patrick’s in downtown Toledo to send their children to Catholic school in the metro Toledo area. The advisory board of the foundation plans to add more schools and parishes across The Diocese of Toledo in the future. Scholarships are based on parables and Gospel stories. The Mustard Seed Foundation is hosting a fundraiser “Cinco de Manhattan’s” on May 5 at 5 pm at Manhattan’s Restaurant. Tickets are $25. All proceeds will fund the scholarships.
