Good afternoon, We are pleased to share with you the links to watch the 12th Annual Celebration of the Priesthood Virtual Gala that was held this past Tuesday, September 29th. It was a great turnout! More than 1,400 people watched the live stream of the gala on Facebook and YouTube, with many others watching on Catholic TV. Thousands more have watched the program since that time.
We are very grateful to former Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford Jr. for headlining the program. As Cardinal Seán said, “We are blessed by his service to God and country and his admiration and support for the priests who had a positive impact in his life.”
The Cardinal extends his great appreciation to Joe D’Arrigo and the Clergy Health and Retirement Trust staff, Pat Bartram and Maribeth Wahle and their team at Boston Catholic Development Services for their leadership presenting the event.
We are blessed by the deep commitment of our gala Chairs Karen and Mark Vachon and Carol and Mike Shaughnessy in helping to raise much needed funds that will benefit the health and well-being of active and senior priests in good standing.
To all those who contributed to the gala we offer our sincere gratitude and thank you for your ongoing support for the health and well-being of our priests.
Most importantly we are blessed and grateful for the priests in our Archdiocese who have devoted their lives in service to Christ and the Church.
Next year’s gala is September 21, 2021. Mark the date!
Thank you and God Bless,
Peter J. Uglietto
