Catholic Memorial is carefully monitoring and assessing the impact of the evolving COVID-19 crisis. Based on information provided by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and in light of the cancellation of celebrations, competitions, conferences, events, and large gatherings in our area, we have made the difficult decision to postpone The Gala, tentatively to Saturday, June 13.

After careful deliberation by CM leadership, Gala Co-Chairs, and our Board of Directors, we believe our decision is in the best interest of our families, Gala attendees, honorees, vendors, and the overall CM community.

Thank you to our generous sponsors, ticket holders, donors, and volunteers. More details to follow once we have confirmed a new date. We look forward to celebrating with you soon!
