“This message is for my Representative. My name is [INSERT NAME] and I am a
voter from [INSERT COUNTY]…”
“Please support Scholarship Tax Credits and vote YES on HB 205. A Scholarship Tax
Credit program will increase the financial aid available for students who can’t
otherwise afford a choice in their education. Donors receive a state tax credit when
they contribute to scholarship granting organizations. The donation is given to a
student in need in the form of a scholarship. Kentucky students need Scholarship
Tax Credits!”

PLEASE ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO GET INVOLVED.
WE NEED AS MANY CONTACTS AS POSSIBLE!
TALK ABOUT WHY HB 205 DESERVES SUPPORT
Private donations make the scholarships possible. No taxpayer money is taken from public schools
or given to private schools.
Additional scholarship funds mean more families can get their children into the right learning
environment. Income and zip code will no longer deter educational success.
A new poll shows 62% of Kentuckians support Scholarship Tax Credits. That’s bipartisan, majority
support! Prepared by the Catholic Conference of Kentucky
KY STUDENTS NEED YOUR HELP!

The first reading contrasts the wicked, who place their trust in human beings, with the righteous, who place their trust in God. The gospel is Luke’s Sermon on the Plain, which also speaks about trust in God. The second reading emphasizes the centrality of the resurrection in the Christian life.
