FINANCIAL AID AVAILABLE
According to diocesan canon, a parish that sponsors a candidate is responsible for providing some financial assistance/support. [See Canon 6:2(a)(1)]
If further financial support is needed to cover other non-tuition expenses, special requests may be made to the nominee/postulant’s assigned COM-D contact person. In all cases, the person is required to pay some amount for their education and accompanying expenses and that can be determined on a case-by-case basis
