At the heart of the mission of Catholic education is the belief that each and every child is blessed with God-given gifts and talents.  Every day, our Catholic schools seek to nurture and draw forth these gifts and talents by providing an academically excellent, Christ-centered education.  In doing so, our schools are empowering students to reach their full potential in all facets of their lives.

The Annual Archdiocesan Gala celebrates this mission and legacy.  Over the first 10 years of this signature event, $7+ million has been raised with over $3.5 million going toward tuition assistance scholarships, representing more than 1,300 scholarships created from Gala proceeds.

The 2019 Gala will take place Saturday, September 28th, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront. Guests will enjoy phenomenal performances from Catholic School students, inspiring words from distinguished speakers, and excellent food and drink. Guests interested in securing a hotel room for the evening will enjoy a special discounted rate by reserving their room online here.

If you and/or your organization are interested in sponsoring the 2019 Annual Gala, please contact our Department of Development at 410-547-5356.
