This year's gala is at a beautiful new location!
Join us for Lay Mission-Helpers' Rose Gala at Luminarias in Monterey Park on October 6, 2018, from 4 - 8 p.m.. Surrounded by breathtaking views of the San Gabriel Valley by day, and illuminated by dazzling lanterns by night, Luminarias is an enchanting location to celebrate our Friends of Mission. The evening will include cocktails, fine dining and a silent auction to benefit LMH.
This year's keynote speaker will be Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ, founder of Homeboy Industries, the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world. Fr. Boyle has appeared on national TV and radio shows, conferences and events. What many do not know about Fr. Boyle is that he began his Jesuit career in the mission fields of Bolivia.
LMH will also present the annual Ernst Ophuls Award, named after a young Lay Mission-Helper who gave his life to mission, as well as the St. Therese of Lisieux Award, named after the patroness of Catholic missionaries.
