Directions to Anthony’s Ocean View

We are excited to celebrate the 13th Annual Archbishop’s Columbus Day Breakfast at Anthony’s Ocean View in New Haven.    We hope that you will join us for this very special event to benefit students attending the 14 Catholic elementary schools in our Archdiocese’s Southern Vicariate which includes the Greater New Haven area.  Our speaker this year is Staff Sargent (Ret.) Johnny “Joey” Jones, a former Marine who has endured tragedy and has turned his experience into a personal mission to improve the lives of all he encounters.  We know his message of hope will resonate with our guests and our Catholic school students who represent hope for the future.  Once again,  super star students from each of the benefiting schools will be  recognized for their accomplishments and selfless acts both inside and outside school.    We also will pay special tribute to former FACS Trustee, John M. Aversa, MD, who passed away earlier this year.   Dr. Aversa was an extraordinary man who lived his faith and was a strong proponent of Catholic education.  And we hope our guests will enjoy a surprise video from Catholic school alumnus and American Idol winner Nick Fradiani. 

Come join us for camaraderie, networking and  a true celebration of the wonderful children who attend our Catholic schools.
