STL LEGACY FUND
Fund Mission Statement
The Sister Thomas Leo Monahan Legacy Fund provides tuition assistance to those families with children entering grades K–8 who demonstrate financial need. Established in 2013, the Fund honors Sister’s 40 years of service to the Visitation Parish Community and most specifically Visitation School. As both teacher and principal, Sister lived her stated mission to teach the children of Visitation School “about their Catholic faith, morals and the value of God’s love.” The Sister Thomas Leo Monahan Legacy Fund strives to continue this mission by supporting the efforts of families to provide their children with a Catholic education.
