Light & Truth Gala
On April 30, 2016, Pope John Paul II High School will host its sixth annual Light & Truth Gala at St. Martin’s University’s Worthington Conference Center. We are honored to be welcoming Rev. Burke Masters as this year’s keynote speaker. Fr. Burke attended Providence Catholic High School in Lenox, Illinois for a good education and to further his baseball career. “Little did I know how God would use this decision to attend Providence to completely change my life direction.” That choice would lead Fr. Burke to the Catholic faith, to the priesthood and to serve as Director of Vocations for the Diocese of Joliet. His life serves as a concrete example of the power of a high school Catholic education.
The evening of celebration raises funds to sustain JPII and ensure that a quality Catholic high school education is accessible and affordable for all students who seek it. Please join us!
