We are already planning the 2018 Archbishop’s Columbus Day Breakfast, to be held on October 5, 2018 at the Omni Hotel in New Haven. We hope to make this event even bigger and better! Check back to this page for upcoming details!
A big THANK YOU to all who attended and supported last year’s Archbishop’s Columbus Day Breakfast. We were entertained and inspired by the words of guest speaker Lt. General Ronald S. Coleman who shared his conviction and advice that “If it is to be, it’s up to me!” Student speaker Dominick “Nucci” Delaney encouraged guests to “be your best self”, words of wisdom spoken to him by his mother each day as he went off to school. Each of the benefiting schools spotlighted a superstar student who was recognized both in person before all our guests as well as in the program book. Each student is a wonderful example of the many blessings of a Catholic education and we are all so proud of them! We were entertained by student choir singers and all enjoyed the opportunity for camaraderie while supporting Catholic elementary schools in the New Haven area. The net proceeds of the Breakfast, together with a match from Archdiocese of Hartford, generated over $72,000 in scholarship assistance shared by the 10 benefiting Catholic elementary schools. FACS extends its heartfelt gratitude to all who made the 2017 Archbishop’s Columbus Day Breakfast a success! We hope to see you again along with many more new FACS friends at the 2018 Breakfast!!
