Applications available for Bishop Reiss Religious Education Scholarships


The diocesan Department of Catechesis is currently accepting applications for the July 2023-June 2024 Bishop John C. Reiss Religious Education Scholarship.

The scholarship is available to adults who are actively participating in the religious education ministry in the Diocese of Trenton including parish catechetical leaders, Catholic school principals, adult faith formation or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults leaders, youth ministers, catechists or teachers.  

One of the legacies that Bishop Reiss, the Diocese’s eighth bishop, left is a strong commitment to ongoing catechetical formation. Funds are available to cover tuition costs for continuing education in religion or theology for those who teach the Catholic faith in the Diocese’s parishes and schools. The scholarship may be applied to a course, conference or seminar through any accredited Catholic college or university, in-person or online.

Applications for scholarship awards from the Bishop John C. Reiss Religious Education Scholarship Fund are available upon request from the Department of Catechesis. All completed application forms are to be returned to the Department of Catechesis by April 1. Awards will be announced in May following review of the applications by a scholarship board consisting of one pastor, an elementary school principal, a parish director of religious education, a diocesan representative and the director of the Department of Catechesis.

For further information, contact Denise Contino, director of the Department of Catechesis at 609-403-7179; [email protected] or Debbie D’Agostaro at 609-403-7175; [email protected].
