E-Newsletter - July 2020

Dear Alumni & Friends,
One of the many things that makes Roman Catholic so unique, is the level of financial support offered by our Alumni and Donors to present day students. Your generous commitment to them is unparalleled.  Through the Roman Fund and Day of Giving, Cahillites and friends of Roman step-up, in unprecedented fashion, to support the mission of our historic school.
I would therefore like to inform you of a new initiative.  Faith in the Future, the nonprofit organization which manages the 17 high schools of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, has established a tuition-assistance program, where every gift donated to Roman will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000. These monies are being used exclusively to help families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to keep their son enrolled at Roman.  For example, a $100 gift will become a $200 gift for Roman’s tuition assistance program. 
I know that throughout this past year, many of you have made sacrificial gifts—for that, we are exceedingly grateful.  Yet, if you have not yet made a gift, this would be a great opportunity to double your contribution to Roman and double the impact in a student’s life. Please consider supporting Roman Catholic by donating to this new tuition assistance program at Make sure to designate ROMAN CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL FOR BOYS as the recipient of your gift.
Thank you, in advance, for your continued support!
Father Bongard '77
President/ Rector
