Thank your priest at 60th gala
How many times have you told all the clergy in your life how much they mean to you? Can you think of a priest, or group of priests, who have been a constant in your life?
You can pay tribute during the gala dinner for the archdiocese’s 60th anniversary â€” whose theme is A White Gala to Honor the White Collar â€” by purchasing a 60th anniversary tribute ad to celebrate or commemorate all the priests who have made a difference in your life.
These digital ads will be displayed on large screens and iPads throughout the dinner at Marlins Stadium. They also will be posted online in the Development Office’s Tribute Ad Gallery and sent to clergy and sponsors post-gala as a digital flipbook.
To find out more and purchase a tribute ad, go to www.adomdevelopment.org/tributeads or call Grace Veloz at 305-762-1064.
