Bronx, NY (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
In a time where the Archdiocese Inner-city Catholic School System has been forced to close schools due to lack of enrollment, while newly built City Charter Schools are filling up classrooms, the family owned business of Master Fire Prevention Systems announces a scholarship for families who have been active members at St. Anthony’s Parish and continue in the Catholic School System, even after St Anthony’s closed it’s school doors in 2013. The Master Fire Scholarship was announced on July 6th, whereas countless students applied. The three Scholarship recipients will be announced Sunday, September 7th, during 10:30am Mass, at St Anthony's Church, located on 1776 Mansion Street, Bronx, NY 10460
“We have been neighbors as well as parishioners of St. Anthony’s for over 45 years and were saddened by the news of the School having to close its doors due to the decline of registered students. Our goal is to assist and support St Anthony’s Parish in their mission to grow and thrive during these challenging times.” – Peter Martinez, Jr., President
"In the name of my late husband, Peter Martinez, Sr., we are delighted to be able to offer this Scholarship and look forward to announcing the Scholarship Recipients on Sunday. We believe in the fundamental importance of Faith being at the core of a well-balanced, spiritually healthy, confident child growing up in the inner-city and wish to inspire other local businesses to do as we are doing." – Mrs. Martinez
"The Martinez Family has always supported the initiatives of St. Anthony's Parish. Knowing the value and importance of Catholic Education, the scholarship program they proposed will help our parishioners to send their children to Catholic Schools, especially those who find it financially difficult to do so. St. Anthony's is grateful for the thoughtfulness and generosity of Peter and Mrs. Martinez." – Fr. James Miara, Pastor at St, Anthony's.
