Fr. Gary's Countdown to 70! was a fundraising campaign for the CSC that replaced the 2020 Newman Gala due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
For 70 days (each weekday starting on Nov. 2, 2020 through Feb. 5, 2021) the CSC re-released one of Fr. Gary's best homilies from over the past 25 years.
The CSC community, alumni, and students contributed over $385,000 in donations to support our mission of bringing faith into the lives of the students at Washington University.
We concluded the celebration at Mass on Sunday, February 7, where we were joined by Javier Mendoza who gave a special performance during communion meditation.
