“ It is a tragic irony that when the heavens are being stormed for vocations and God generously answers, that the response can be hindered by something as minor in comparison as a student loan. Yet, sadly more and more vocations are being put on hold for this very reason. That's why vocation directors exclaim: 'Thank God for the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations!' The Fund has taken the lead in spotlighting this problem nationally and in engaging the search for creative solutions. ”
Fr. Andrew-Carl Wisdom, O.P. Promoter of Vocations Director of the Society for Vocational Support Dominican Province of St. Albert the Great
The Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations (MEFV) helps men and women who have generously responded to God's call to religious life but are prevented from begining that life of sacrifice by their student loans. The MEFV offers grants that pay the minimum monthly payments of a sister's or brother's student loans. The MEFV was founded by Corey and Katherine Huber in November 2006 when they could no longer fund this support for vocations through their private foundation, the Fraser Family Foundation (of Virginia).
