Catholic High School Student
$1,000 TUITION SCHOLARSHIP
Information on Una Voce:
Una Voce is an organization of lay Catholics originally founded in Europe in 1964 to promote the traditional Roman Rite (Latin) Mass. This is the Mass that was celebrated in the Church from about 500 A.D. until the late 1960’s, and during this period it was the primary liturgy of the Church. Last year, The Holy Father announced his support of this ancient liturgy, and he urged all the bishops of the Church to give Catholics greater access to it in his letter “Summorum Pontificum.” Una Voce Brooklyn is a local chapter of Una Voce America, and was founded in 2000. Our organization is pleased to announce this $1,000 tuition scholarship to high school students, in order to help them with their educational expenses.
For more information about the traditional Latin Mass and Una Voce, please see www.unavoce.org and www.uvbrooklyn.org.
