Watch our Virtual President's Gala!

 Frank and students


Our annual celebration of our brilliant Verbum Dei High School students and the bright futures that await them was a hit this year. This year we gathered virtually to support our Resiliency Fund, an effort to close the funding gap pertaining to lost scholarships and job placements due to COVID-19. While our community of students and families have been impacted this year, their optimism has never wavered. We thank you for honoring their perseverance, and raising funds for those who need it most and are excited to share that we raised over $530,000 for our students!

Gala Pre Party

A Gala Pre Party is a small intimate reception where Verbum Dei supporters have the opportunity to learn about Verbum Dei and our yearly Gala Fundraiser Event. The receptions are held in the home of a Verbum Dei host family and they offer a fun and convenient way to support our students. Get to know other Verbum Dei supporters, meet students, and join in the fun for a little food and drinks.

Annual Adopt-A-Student Program Meet & Greet Event

meetgreet2The Annual Adopt-A-Student Program Meet & Greet Event is a small reception where many AASP “Parents” get to meet their “sons,” often for the first time, as they’ve been corresponding throughout the year through letters, note cards, and assignments.

Through AASP, more than any other program we administer on campus, we develop men for others, as “parents” are use as models for our students to immolate so that they one day graduate college, lead successful lives, and of course one day, adopt their own student.

For the 2020-2021 school year we are not able to host an event but would love for AASP Parents to still meet or catch up with their student.  We are open to setting up a Zoom call with you and your students, just let us know.
