For the past several years the CSC has kicked off the month of November with the Newman Gala as our primary fundraising event for the year.  This spring we made the difficult decision to cancel the Gala as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, that isn’t going to stop us from reimagining November 2020 with a celebration like no other!

Join us as we celebrate Fr. Gary’s 70th birthday by counting down to the big day with 70 days of birthday wishes featuring our favorite homilies from Fr. Gary!

The 70-day “countdown” will begin on Monday, November 2, 2020 and end on Fr. Gary’s birthday, Friday, February 5, 2021. We will recognize Fr. Gary by releasing 70 of his best homilies; one each day (Monday – Friday) through Email, Facebook and Instagram. Similar to the Newman Gala, sponsorship opportunities are available. For this event, however, 100% of your donation is tax deductible and will go directly to the CSC.
