The Terri Schindler Schaivo Scholarship

My Jesus Mercy Ministries has undertaken the task of establishing a Scholarship in Memory of Terri at Ave Maria University’s Pre Theologate program. The Scholarship supports the young men in the program who are discerning a vocation to the Holy Priesthood.

The first annual benefit dinner to raise funds for the Terri Schindler Schaivo Scholarship was held this past year on Feb 21, 2005. The benefit was held at St. Raphel’s Parish in Lehigh Acres, FL. Seventy people were in attendance. A group of Pre- Theologate students whom the scholarship benefits also came to show support for Terri’s cause. The dinner raised a total of $2,000 to support the Pre-Theologate. Each year at this time My Jesus Mercy Ministries will have a benefit dinner as the main fundraising event for the scholarship. This past event featured speakers such as Fr. Dominic Mary from EWTN, Bob and Mary Schindler and Msgr. Thaddeus Malanowski.

Msgr. Malanowski addressed the injustices he witnessed in Terri’s case as he served as the family’s spiritual director. As a retired chaplain and general in the U.S. Army he also stressed the importance of a right to life in our nation. Fr. Dominic Mary addressed most of his talk to the Pre-Theologate students. He condemned the silence of priests on right to life issues and challenged the students to reevaluate their commitment to life. Terri’s father, Bob Schindler closed the evening with heartfelt remarks of gratitude for this commitment to his daughter’s memory.

The upcoming benefit dinner will be held on:

Thursday Feb. 8, 2007 in Lehigh Acres, FL.

Featuring Keynote Speaker:

Archbishop Raymond L. Burke
