Catholic Distance University friends, supporters, faculty, and graduates will celebrate together at our 2019 Gala. The Academic Convocation Mass, graduation, and gala festivities will be held at the St. John Paul II Center in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, November 16.
The Most Reverend Christophe Pierre (pictured above), a French-born prelate and diplomat to the Holy See, will be our Founder’s award recipient. Archbishop Pierre, who serves as the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, will address attendees with inspirational words about our Faith. The Diocese of Brooklyn will also be recognized for its innovative partnership with CDU through the Holy Spirit Institute, which prepares lay leaders for service to the Church.
The special evening will also include a cocktail reception, dinner, museum tour, and auction that includes international trips from our Amfund partner.
Mark your calendars for the 2019 CDU Gala. This is an event you will not want to miss.
