Evening of Hope


Thank you for supporting Seeds of Hope!

Saturday night’s Annual Evening of Hope Gala was a testament to the importance of a Catholic education. Over 340 supporters and friends attended the special evening where more than $420,000 was raised to benefit Seeds of Hope.
Mr. & Mrs. Kevin & Jill Heringer were presented with the Sister LaVonne Award, recognizing their role as tireless advocates for Catholic education.
 The festive event included a pop quiz and a moving presentation by renowned Bible scholar and Catholic speaker, Dr. Tim Gray. Guests learned first-hand how their giving has impacted students, parents, teachers and staff in our schools.

Please enjoy images from the evening’s festivities. Your investment in our mission is always appreciated!

A wonderful night!

What does Catholic education mean to you?


“Catholic education works with parents to form children after the heart and mind of Christ, giving them a sense of purpose for their lives and a desire for excellence.”

Most Rev. Samuel J. Aquila, Archbishop of Denver

“In our age it seems like the truth is up for grabs. Catholic Schools transmit time-honored truths that help form children and young adults into the principled citizens and leaders of tomorrow.”

Very Rev. Randy M. Dollins, Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia

“As a result of the work of angels on earth like the donors of Seeds of Hope, children are given the opportunity of a Catholic education. This gives us as educators the chance to reach both their minds and their souls. With them in our seats, we are able to meet them wherever they are in their spiritual journey and help form them to know, love and serve God.”

Toni Vaeth, Associate Superintendent of Catholic Schools, Archdiocese of Denver

“The opportunity to meet Jesus and to follow Him as His disciple in everything I learn and do.”

R. Jared Staudt, PhD, Director of Formation, Archdiocese of Denver

“We thank you for considering our application and pray that you are able to help us provide this Catholic education for our boys so they may become men of God.”
