NDCCW Award Scholarships to Mercy Freshmen

Two incoming Mercy High School freshmen were each presented a scholarship by the Norwich Diocesan Council of Catholic Women(NDCCW). 

Marian Hall of St. Bridget of Kildare Parish in Moodus and Isabella Baldassini of St. Mary Częstochowa Parish in Middletown submitted applications in the spring.  The $500 scholarships are awarded to eighth grade girls who will be attending a Catholic high school in the fall.

Isabella, the daughter of Paul Baldassini and Susanne Lee-Baldassini, graduated from St. John Paul II School in Middletown.

Marian, the daughter of Iain Hall and Molly-Kate Hall, graduated from East Hampton Middle School.

The Norwich Diocesan Council of Catholic Women acts through its affiliates to support, empower and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership and service. NDCCW programs respond with Gospel values to the needs of the Church and society in the modern world.

To find out more about the scholarship or to become a member contact Judy Pappagallo, President of the Norwich Diocesan Council of Catholic Women at judypappa@hotmail.com or 860-889-1617 for more information.
