The Catholic Education Foundation of the Diocese of Joliet hosted its debut Angel for a Day event on Thursday, February 12, at Holy Family Catholic School in Bensenville, and St. John the Baptist Catholic School in Winfield. The purpose of this event was to let donors contribute to the Catholic Education Foundation see their investment come to fruition in the children they assist. The participation of the donors demonstrated past accomplishments and the current needs of the children they are assisting with monetary scholarships.
Twenty seven donors in total attended at two locations: St John the Baptist Catholic School in Winfield and Holy Family Catholic School in Bensenville. Donors were able to have one-to-one interactions with the students. This included a chemistry experiment, choir practice, gym class, and religion.
“We would like to thank the CEF team, and St. John the Baptist and Holy Family faculty, staff and students for the wonderful day. Truly an enriching and energizing experience,” said Mike Desmond, CEF donor.
The Catholic Education Foundation of the Diocese of Joliet accomplishes an important mission in our Diocese by raising resources to allow children in need to attend elementary and secondary Catholic schools throughout the Diocese of Joliet.
