3rd Annual Soiree


On March 3, 2018, the faculty and students of Gregory the Great Academy gathered for our annual Soirée fundraiser at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Scott Bloch in McLean, Virginia. Our keynote speaker this year was Dr. Scott Hahn of the Franciscan University of Steubenville. The evening included an array of excellent dishes prepared under the direction of alumnus Marc-Pierre Jansen, fine wines, a silent and live auction featuring incredible handcrafted works of art, and a performance by the Highlander Schola Cantorum. Old friends and new gathered for the event to raise funds and awareness for the Academy’s Homeward Campaign. A warm thank you to all of our guests and benefactors, to the many volunteers and coordinators who ran the evening, and to our gracious hosts. The Soirée was a great success for the third year running.

Listen to Dr. Scott Hahn give his talk.

Over the weekend, the students of Gregory the Great Academy traveled to Steubenville, Ohio to be the guests of Dr. Scott Hahn and family.  On Saturday they visited Pittsburgh, toured the Fort Pitt Museum, and performed juggling shows throughout the Iron City.  The boys returned to Steubenville for dinner and a talk by Dr. Hahn on the “Our Father.”

Sunday included another juggling show performed for the students of Franciscan University.  The main event however was the High Mass sung by the Highlander Schola Cantorum.  In addition to the proper of Mass, the Schola sang a beautiful polyphonic Mass ordinary and several motets.

Our many thanks are extended to Hahn family and Franciscan University for their generous hospitality!
