The St. Maria De Mattias Endowment has been established to benefit Religious Education in the Diocese of Wichita.
The primary purpose of the fund is to encourage and support the creation of innovative programs and resources to evangelize and catechize adults and children into a lived Catholic Faith.
In keeping with the Diocesan Endowment Policy spending guidelines and recent declines in the market, grant applications for the St. Maria De Mattias Endowment have been suspended. We will be reviewing the status of the endowment and will communicate on this site when we will reconvene our regular cycles.
