Scholarship Value – Up to $1,500, non-renewable

Catherine LaPlante was an active member of the “Women of St. Rose,” the parish community next door to Bishop Manogue. She and her husband Bruce raised their three children in the Los Angeles area. She worked in the teaching supply industry, and numerous times she not only donated products from her business, but also reached into her own pocketbook to help students and schools in need. She treasured education, so this Scholarship Fund in her memory is a fitting tribute to Catherine, who died too young at 61 on January 22, 2009.
