The awards were made possible by Knights of Columbus Council 26, which donated $2,500, and the work of many volunteers of both parishes, who ran dinners, socials, a bake sale and tag sale to raise funds for the scholarship.

In addition to those in the photo, grant awards went to Caroline Dhanagar and Lily Muzzarell.

On June 29, the two parishes will merge and take the name Mary, Gate of Heaven Parish as part of the Archdiocese of Hartford's pastoral plan.
