It continues to be both amazing and edifying to me the way Catholics in the Diocese of Dallas respond to the needs of the community. For more than 100 years Catholic Charities has demonstrated the care and compassion of Christ in our Diocese. Catholic Charities has touched the lives of thousands without regard to race or creed. It witnesses to the Church’s preferential option for the poor today with its network of family and human services, just as it did when it was founded to care for orphans more than 110 years ago.
A significant portion of the funds necessary for the continuing operation of many of its services is raised through the annual Bishop’s Gala to be held the evening of January 16 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. This year the theme is “Boots & Dazzle, Big D Style.” The evening will include music by Diamond Rio, the great country music band. Some who participate in the live auction will go home with a ticket to Italy tucked in their pocket.
Come, kick up your heels and have an evening of fun for a wonderful cause.
