Archbishop’s St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast

The Foundation for the Advancement of Catholic Schools celebrated “17-17-17 “, the 17th Annual Archbishop’s St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast on March 17, 2017. We welcomed nearly 1000 Hartford area business people at the Connecticut Convention Center. Through their generosity and loyal support, we are pleased to announce that this was our most successful Archbishop’s St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast to date. Guest speaker Mark K. Shriver shared his words of wisdom and faith; an inspiration to many. We were once again entertained by Archdiocesan High School Irish step dancers as well as bagpiper, Pat Whalen. Four high school students were recognized for the extraordinary essays they wrote about why Catholic education is important to them and how FACS has been part of attaining their education. Mary W. (pictured above) wrote a very poignant essay and moved our guests as she shared her story. We are so proud that the Archbishop’s St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast has become the place to be in Hartford on St. Patrick’s Day morning. We hope to see you next year on March 16, 2018 as we gather together to celebrate and support Catholic education. Save the date!
