It’s that time of year again!

October 20th will be a night to remember as we support the Catholic Education Foundation at its annual event, Gaudeamus. The Catholic Education Foundation provides scholarships for students with financial need to attend Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.

Gaudeamus is our biggest event of the year. It has been on The Independent magazine’s list of Top Ten events in Kansas City for six years in a row!

Being chosen as the Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann CEF School of Excellence for 2018 is a great honor for us at Christ the King Parish School. We have a long-standing tradition of providing not only a faith-filled education for our students, but we strive to meet the individual needs of every child in our school. I wish everyone affiliated the Catholic Education Foundation and anyone who supports Catholic education could see the joy-filled students whose lives you are changing.

This month marked a new experience for me as a Catholic Education Foundation board member. Through my involvement in CEF, I’ve toured numerous grade schools throughout the Archdiocese. The joy that these schools emanate is unmistakable. On top of the deep Catholic roots that are always evident, it is just a lot of fun to see young kids in their element playing, learning, feeling loved. As the father of a high schooler, I understand that while joy is still there, for teenagers, it is sometimes hiding under a candy-shell of hormone-induced nonchalance.

Years ago, my brother-in-law introduced me to the mission of the Catholic Education Foundation at a CEF Trivia Night. At the time, I had only been part of the Catholic Church for a few years. I did not grow up Catholic, nor did I attend Catholic schools. But when I heard about the graduation rates and college enrollment numbers for students at the CEF-supported high school, I was hooked. Those numbers were much higher than the other schools in the same zip codes.
