About the Parish Assistance Endowment

Allie Russell

In your charity, please pray for the soul of Allie Russell (1923-2022), parishioner at Holy Family Church in Glentana, who made her first gift to the Foundation in 2015 to launch the Parish Assistance Endowment.

Coming from a very small rural parish, Allie understood how difficult it is for some of the Catholic churches in Eastern Montana to make ends meet. She decided to do something about it, and created an endowment. “It is an honor to be able to help the churches,” Allie said. “Some of them are really in need and I am glad to do what I can.”

Each year, the endowment’s distribution goes to a parish in need via the grant program. Please consider joining Allie in her support of our diocese’s rural parishes by giving to the Parish Assistance Endowment.
