Catholic Charities Spring Celebration 2024

Thank you for joining us at the 2024

Catholic Charities’ Spring Celebration

Thank you to all who attended Spring Celebration 2024. The evening was a remarkable celebration of Cardinal Seán O’Malley for his twenty years as Archbishop of Boston. Governor Maura Healey expressed her profound appreciation for the Cardinal’s leadership, and friends shared beautiful remarks about his leadership and tireless advocacy for people on the margins.

Through the incredible generosity of so many and the encouragement of our extraordinary emcees Jack Connors Jr. and Father John Unni, Spring Celebration 2024 was the most successful in recent history, with nearly $1.5 million raised to provide critical and life-changing programs and services to families in need.
