IMPORTANT! Changes to the Federal Student Lending Process

With the recently enacted Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010 (H.R. 4872), the Federall Family Educational Loan (FFEL) Program has been eliminated. Private lenders, like Louisiana Catholic FCU no longer have a role in originating or funding federal Stafford, PLUS or Consolidated loans.

For questions or service related to an existing Federal Family Educational Loan through Louisiana Catholic FCU, contact our chosen servicer, Great Lakes at 1-800-236-4300, or at

Please contact your school’s financial aid office for a federal student loan.

Credit Union Day

Have you heard of “Credit Union Day” at St. John Berchmans Cathedral School and St. Joseph Catholic School? Once a month, on a designated date, a credit union employee visits the schools to open accounts and receive deposits for the students. With each deposit the student is awarded a small gift to encourage the savings habit and to make saving fun. We’re proud to be a part of these students’ lives and hope to teach them the value of saving.

All students, teachers and employees of St. John Berchmans Cathedral School, St. Joseph Catholic School and Loyola College Prep are eligible for membership to our credit union. And once they’re a member, their families become eligible for membership also!
