Night of Light


Thank you for making the 5th annual Night of Light celebration a huge success!

We are thrilled to be able to share with you that we raised more than $600,000 in pre-event pledges and donations on Friday.

Thank you! 100% of these funds raised will go to support scholarships for students to attend Catholic schools. We simply couldn’t have done this without you.

Join us again this year in shining a light on the teachers and school leaders who work tirelessly day in and day out to provide an excellent, vibrantly Catholic education to our scholars.
