JPII Light and Truth Gala 2018

The Light & Truth Gala will be held on Saturday, April 28th at 6:30 pm at Saint Martin’s University’s Worthington Conference Center.  We are thrilled to be welcoming keynote speaker Rev. Michael Denk. Fr. Denk is a young diocesan priest from Cleveland who builds bridges with younger generations through creative social media. He is the founder of the Prodigal Father website, author of Pray 40 Days, and creator of the Examen Prayer app. However, the true stars of our annual gala are our students who will serve as emcees, speakers, hosts and entertainers throughout the event.
