Catholic Schools Gala

The 10th Annual Archdiocesan Gala for Catholic Schools

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 the mission and legacy of our Catholic schools. Since its inception in 2009, this signature event has raised over $6.5 million in support of both current and endowed tuition assistance support for thousands of students and their families.

The 2018 Gala, marking this signature event’s 10-year anniversary, took place Saturday, September 29th, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront. Guests enjoyed phenomenal performances from Catholic School students, inspiring words from distinguished speakers, excellent food and drink, and a special tribute honoring our dedicated instructors in celebration of The Year of the Teacher.

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