Project St. Patrick – Support Vocations
2023 Easter Appeal
As we get ready for our Easter Appeal and starting our process of Project St Patrick fund raising, we want to give you a timeline of our projected process for this year 2023. The following is our anticipated schedule:
Between January and May, we encourage all Divisions, Counties, and State Boards (and Individuals if so inclined) to make an Easter Appeal contribution using the “2023 Project St. Patrick Donation Form”. The form is on our website (aoh.com) either on:
The HOME page under CATHOLIC then scroll down to PROJECT ST PATRICK then scroll down again to 2023 PROJECT ST PATRICK DONATION FORM. Please note that the form should be filled in on the website then printed once complete.
The FORMS page under OFFICIAL AOH FORMS then scroll down to Project St Patrick Forms and scroll down again to 2023 PROJECT ST PARICK DONATION FORM. Please note that the form should be filled in on the website then printed once complete.
Between June and August, we ask all Divisions to send us the 2023 DIVISION DIOCESE FORM for the Diocese within their Division area that has a Vocational Director. This form is our lead to send letters to the Vocational Director to notify students who are studying for religious life or a seminarian of the grant opportunity. The letter to the Vocational Directors will be sent around the 1st of September.
Between September and October 31st, we receive the 2023 VOCATIONAL GRANT APPLICATION FORM along with the Vocational Director’s recommendation letter. We place a cutoff date of October 15th on the 2023 VOCATIONAL GRANT APPLICATION FORM as the last day the grant application form should be accepted by the Vocational Director.
Between November 1st and November 15th, the Chair people along with the National AOH and National LAOH Presidents finalize the approval of candidates who will receive the grants and hopefully by the 1st of December the checks “are in the mail”.
