Principal Leslie Southerland, Monsignor Gregory Gier, & Auction Chair Amy Wright

On January 30th, Holy Family Cathedral School will be having its annual Knight of a Thousand Stars Dinner and Auction. This year, the event will honor Msgr. Gregory Gier, Rector Emeritus, recognizing his commitment and dedication to Holy Family Cathedral School.

Please join us at the Jazz Hall of Fame on January 30th at 6:00 p.m. Individual tickets are $75.00, and patron tables are available for $1250 (table of 10) and $1100 (table of 8). For reservations, please contact: Leslie Southerland, principal, 918-582-0422 or leslie.southerland@myhfcs.org.

The School’s tradition of hosting a Dinner and Auction grew from a series of events held in the Cathedral Auditorium in the 1990s. It grew to become not only a way for Tulsa’s Catholics to invest in Catholic Education, but a way for the school to thank those benefactors who have consistently supported the mission of the school.

SAINT KATHARINE DREXEL SOCIETY

The highlight of the event is the induction of a new member into the Saint Katharine Drexel Society, a way to honor those who continue the work of Catholic Education in Tulsa started in 1899 by Mother Katharine Drexel. She founded and financed the school that we know today at Holy Family Cathedral School. She funded the construction of hundreds of schools across the United States.

Msgr. Gier’s name will be added to the list of previous inductees, including:
• Mr. & Mrs. Alfred F. Boudreau
• Mr. James Anthony Robinson
• Mr. John C. Duffy
• Mrs. Mary Kathleen Stromie Keith
• Mrs. Anne Roberts
• Most Reverend Eusebius J. Beltran
