The Effect of Student Loan Debt on Vocations Part 2 with Anne Folan

The Effect of Student Loan Debt on Vocations Part 2 with Anne Folan

July 3, 2020

In the last episode of Money Stories, Anne Folan spoke about the toll student loan debt is taking on vocations. In this episode, Anne is back to discuss what the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations is doing to help this problem. The Fund for Vocations process is intricately designed with a purpose. Not only is the Fund for Vocations IRS compliant, it has to be Canon law compliant as well.

To recap from last week's episode, 45 million Americans owe student loan debt, collectively owing more than $1.5 trillion dollars. Two out of every three college graduates will graduate with a student debt load averaging over $30,000. For individuals discerning a call to religious life, student loan debt can create a tremendous obstacle they didn't consider when pursuing their college degrees because religious communities usually don't allow a person with unresolved debts to enter

Manage Your Money God’s Way - You Need a Will

March 11, 2020

“Thus says the LORD, ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die’” (2 Kings 20:1). Not a very pleasant thought is it?

Even if you live, your family may need to deal with your affairs in case of an accident or illness. Being prepared is the best gift you can give them. If you don’t do it, the government will make those decisions for you.

Our guest on this podcast is Vanessa J. Skinner, an estate attorney at Winderweedle, Haines, Ward & Woodman, P.A., who will share thoughts on what to consider in estate planning, which is NOT just for those who are rich.

The Compass blog has more on what to consider in your estate plan. The Compass Catholic Set Your House in Order Bible study provides forms and discussion points for you to consider when making these important decisions.
