Outreach

The people of St. Christopher’s understand that Christ’s mission imperative sends them into the world. That is evident in the amount of money and labor that members of this parish contribute to many and varied projects.

St. Christopher’s is one of the largest donors to many local and international charities and social service agencies. Outreach is a line item in our annual budget.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS:

THE GNADE SCHOLARSHIP TRUST

The estate of Richard Gnade, long time member of St. Christopher’s, was established to provide scholarship assistance to young men from Bandera County, to attend college or university in the state of Texas. High School seniors of any religious denomination, with above average grades, may secure an application from the counselor.  Scholarships are awarded at the end of high school, and continue every semester up to 4 years, based on need and academic achievement.

GNADE GRANTS TO PUBLIC LIBRARIES

The Richard Gnade estate also provides grants of roughly $1000 per year to the Bandera Public Library and Medina Public Library.  The Rector of St. Christopher’s serves as Chair of the Richard Gnade Scholarship and Library Trust.
