Benedictines: January 2010 Archives

Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology, St. Meinrad, IN, has been awarded an $895,000 grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. of Indianapolis. The grant will be used as supplemental support for the "One Bread, One Cup" youth liturgical leadership program.

The funds will underwrite a portion of the operating expenses of the program for five years. During that time, Saint Meinrad will continue to build an endowment to replace the grant as a source of operating revenue. Other costs of the program are covered by participant fees.

"Lilly Endowment has played a crucial role in supporting our program over the years," said Fr. Godfrey Mullen, OSB, interim manager for the "One Bread, One Cup" program. "Their support empowers Saint Meinrad to pass on the Benedictine heritage of community and liturgy to another generation of Catholics. Catholic youth and those who serve them will benefit greatly from 'One Bread, One Cup' because of the generosity of the Lilly Endowment."
