Native American Dioceses Sustainability Grants
Resolved, That $355,625 of the total $667,000 Long-term Development Grants (budget line 402) for the four principal dioceses engaged in Native American ministry (Alaska, Navajoland, North Dakota, and South Dakota), be distributed and released as follows:
completion of Star Lodge
St. Stephen’s, Ft. Yukon.
- In consultation with the Missioner for Indigenous Ministries, the bishops of the four dioceses noted above, are in agreement and are submitting this allocation request. The bishops wish to receive these funds now to enable construction before harsh weather sets in during the autumn months. An earlier request for $270,000 was approved by Executive Council in February 2019 as FIN-024. This additional request, if approved, leaves a remaining balance of $ 41,375.
