Bishop Dewane Keynotes Ave Maria University Scholarship Benefit

More good news! Looks like the good bishop is set to speak at an annual benefit dinner that funds a scholarship established in Terri Schiavo Schindler's honor. The scholarship is exclusively for students attending Ave Maria University. From the Naples News:

My Jesus Mercy Ministries will host a benefit dinner for Ave Maria University’s pre-theologate program on Feb. 5 at St. Raphael’s Parish Hall in Lehigh Acres. The dinner will be held in memory of Terri Schiavo, the St. Petersburg woman who died in 2005 after a high-profile battle between her husband and parents about removing her from life support. The dinner costs $40 to attend with proceeds going toward a scholarship program in Schiavo’s name at Ave Maria for those interested in a priestly vocation. Religious art and books will be available as well with a portion of the sales going toward the scholarship fund. The dinner will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. Diocese of Venice Bishop Frank Dewane will serve as the event’s guest speaker.
Amen. Don't be surprised when you see more great news about the cooperation between the bishop and AMU - who clearly play for the same team!
