The family Mary Church. I. Chuck Wickman Washington catechist is model of faith, stc00adfastness Wickman is active as a Eu- charistic Minister and as a Lector. He has been a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Conference at St. Mary Church for about eight years. His service on tile St. Mary Parish Council included one year as parish council presi- dent. "Faith is caught, not taught," said Wickman. "For me, maturity has brought with it a great depen- dence on prayer and faith; so much so, that I can't imagine being able to cope with life's trials or being able to gen- uinely enjoy the peace and comfort of God's many gifts without a spiritual life that is not continually nurtured," he said. Openness about his faith is important for a catechist, he believes. "I feel that another's faith is often encouraged or reaf- firmed by our actions," he said. "In my opinion, it is im- portant to let another know that it is O.K. to express our though and feelings about prayer, faith and God. Too often we are hesitant to do so because of what others may think." Wickman has praise and prayers for his students. "I have a great respect for the young adults who come to confirmation sessions at 8:30 on Sunday morning. My hope is that as they journey toward the celebration of Confirmation, the peace and comfort of God's love will be manifested in their lives, too." Wickman is very person- able and non-threatening for his students, according to Michael Jones, executive di- rector of religious education. Jones said the youth have an easy time relating to him. "I really respect and admire Charles very much," said Jones. "He has a gentle strength that draws people to him. I am sure this quality .comes through in his cate- chetical sessions with the youth'." Jones noted that Wickman has given freely of himself to the service of others and the Church. He termed Wick- man's activity over the years as "a model of faith and steadfastness which is so badly needed among the youth today."

LEINGANG Message editor The Catholic Education Foundation is now accepting grant-h:aid applications for stude0'ts attending or wishing to attend Mater Dei or Memo- rial high schools in Evansville. The grants provide tuition assistance to students who qualify financially, according to Rudy Montejano, executive director. The Catholic Education Foundation was incorporated in 1968 to solicit funds from concerned individuals, busi- nesses and foundations. The funds are distributed to pro- vide tuition assistance for fi- nancially qualified students, and also to support the work of the Marian Day School for handicapped and special children. Each applicant for a tuition grant must file a separate ap- plication, even if a family has more than one student apply- ing, said Montejano, in mate- rial prepared far distribution for the coming year. All questions must be an- swered or the application will not be considered, he said. Applications must be accompanied by W-2 forms or tax returns. All information in the application is held in confidence, Monteiano said.

The pastor will re- view the applications and re- turn it to CEF. Applications must"be fuily  completed and returned to the CEF office by or before March 1. Applications are coded by number, and the name of the applicant is not known to the reviewing committee. This anonymity "protects the ap- plicant from committee bias and protects the committee from undue influence," Mon- tejano said. Factors used in determin- ing the grants include the amount of discretionary in- come, unusual circum- stances, and the recommen- dation of the feeder school principal and the parish pas- tor. The amount of a grant is based on the financial needs of each applicant, relative to all other applications. The amount of the grant is deter- mined solely by the review- ing committee appointed by the CEF Board of Directors, subject to funds available. Since 1968, more than $1 million has been awarded by CEF to more than 4,000 students. Applications .for grants are available at the high school offices, from the principals of Catholic elementao, schools and from parish pastors.
