Dylan's Catholic HS Tuition help

At 40 my husband Dino and I were blessed with Dylan.  Dylan has type 1 Diabetes and an autoimmune thyroid condition.  Dylan has attended Holy Redeemer Catholic school  K - 8.  He has been accepted to the 2 local Catholic High Schools that he applied to.  The challenge is that we were not given any financial assistance. The subsidized tuition rate is $13376. per year.  We were anticipating that we would have to contribute about $700 per month for 11 months his Freshmen year.  Without financial aid we are expected to pay $1216.00 per month for 11 months.    I have worked as a lay minister in the Catholic Church for 25 years.  Our Catholic faith is important to us.  Dino, Dylan and I have all contributed time, talent and treasure to our parish, our school, and local community.  Our monthly budget is tight.  Items that don't show up on the financial profile include: Dylan's diabetes and thyroid medications as well as all of his insulin pump supplies cost us about $370 per month.  We also have a $220 payment on his braces, an a monthly payment on the roof required on our 86 year old home.   We drive used older vehicles and live simply.  We must affirm our decision of a school by 4/1/16.  We are choosing Central Catholic.    We are trusting that the Good Lord will provide.  It is our hope that once Dylan is attending Central that he can apply for scholarships and other aid for his other 3 years of High School.  How can YOU help:
1- Offer prayers of support
2- Spread the word to others who beleive in Catholic Education, or who know Dylan or I.
3- and/or If you have the ability to contribute a small amount to help Dylan attend Central Catholic we would be eternally grateful.  Thank you for your time and consideration.
