Dear Friends of the Brothers,
I apologize for this late note but we have been trying to get the word out that The Board of the La Salle School at St. Gabriel's Parish is honoring the Christian Brothers on Monday, November 10 at Bruno's on the Boulevard on 88 Street and Astoria Boulevard in East Elmhurst.
This event will assist the Brothers in raising the much needed funds to make Catholic education more affordable for the children of working class and immigrant families. Your gift will be used for the children at the La Salle School at St. Gabriel's Parish.
The following Brothers who taught at Mater Christi will be at the Gala on Monday:
Brother Aquinas Richard Connors
Brother Austin David
Brother Joseph Patrick
Brother Stephen Creagh (who after he left MC spent over 30 years in Africa)
Brother Michael Dundin
There will also be many other Brothers attending who have taught in New York, Rhode Island and Africa.
I know that you are receiving this on Saturday and the event is in two days but your presence would mean a great deal to the Brothers. Please call a friend or friends and invite them to join us.
The donation is $100 and you can e-mail me or call the school on Monday morning to say that you are able to come.
Brother Edward Shields, Class of 1968
