Juliann Eickholtz Memorial Fund
for Faith Formation & Youth Ministry
Juliann Eickholtz was the Director of Religious Education at St. Michael for over 35 years. She poured her heart and soul into bringing people, especially youth, to Christ. The Juliann Eickholtz Memorial Fund is one small way we can honor Juliann and continue the work that she so faithfully devoted her life to.
How are the Funds Used?
The Juliann Eickholtz Memorial Fund is a restricted-use fund that was established in 2022 to support Faith Formation and Youth Ministry at St. Michael Catholic Church. This includes, but is not limited to, programs such as Children's Liturgy, Youth Group, Vacation Bible School, Religious Education for Youth and Adults, Service Projects, Sacrament Preparation for Youth and Adults, Bible and Book Studies, Catechist Formation, Parish Ministries, Spiritual Development, and much more.
How can I donate?
Cash, Check, or Charge! Each year, we will have a pledge weekend the first weekend in October. At Mass on pledge weekend, we will review our annual report from the previous year and present plans for the upcoming year. We encourage Parishioners to donate based on their preference. Here are some options:
1.) Make a one-time plege on (or after) pledge weekend. Special envelopes will be provided on pledge weekend.
2.) Make monthly (or periodic) pledges, using your Juliann Eickholtz Memorial Fund envelopes, included in your yearly box set beginning in 2023.
3.) Donate online at any time. (Make sure you add a note that the donation is for the Juliann Eickholtz Memorial Fund).
Thank you for donating to St. Michael Catholic Church!
