Saint Mary Soirée: Building Hearts, Minds & Futures

With the support of our St. Mary friends, families, and sponsors, the Saint Mary Soirée raised over $56,000 in support of St. Mary Interparochial School.

On Thursday, April 7, 2022, St. Mary Interparochial School hosted the Saint Mary Soirée: a Celebration to Fund Our Facility at the Arts Ballroom. Over 180 guests joined us in support of building our students' hearts, minds, and futures. This celebration was truly a night to remember! Thanks to the generosity of our St. Mary family, friends, and sponsors, St. Mary Interparochial School was able to raise over $56,000 in support of upgrading our school facilities so that we may continue to build our students’ hearts, minds, and futures. Thank you to all who helped make this year's event a success!

Saint Mary is delighted to honor Thomas Jefferson University with the Partner in Academic Excellence Award. Saint Mary Interparochial School is currently collaborating with Thomas Jefferson University in a two-year initiative to strengthen our students’ understanding and view of health and healing. Together, we are aiming to redefine and provide relevant education on healing through mental, physical, and spiritual growth. Learn more about Jefferson University by clicking here.

Reverend John J. Large graciously served as Pastor Delegate on the Board of Limited Jurisdiction at Saint Mary Interparochial School from 2014 through 2020. We thank Father Large for his years as Pastor Delegate of Saint Mary Interparochial School, and for his lively and thoughtful masses that our students and teachers think back on fondly! It is with great honor that Saint Mary Interparochial School acknowledges Reverend John Large as their Legacy Leader.

During the Soiree, guests participated in a 10-minute Mobile Giving Challenge, led by Betty Montgomery (Class of '08), Claire Montgomery (Class of '13), and Emily Montgomery (Class of '21). Our generous donors raised over $13,700 during this 10-minute challenge - over 675% of our $2,022 goal! Thank you all for your generous donations during our Mobile Giving Challenge! 

We thank our Soiree Committee for planning and orchestrating such an unforgettable night. Thank you for supporting St. Mary Interparochial School!

Honoring

Reverend John Large, Legacy Leader Award

Reverend John Large graciously served as Pastor Delegate at St. Mary Interparochial School from 2014 through 2020. He has retired as pastor of St. Paul’s Church and has transferred to another Philadelphia parish where he has been able to help out where he can, but most importantly has taken time to ease into his well-deserved retirement. We thank Father Large for his years as Pastor Delegate of St. Mary Interparochial School, and for his lively and thoughtful masses that our students and teachers think back on fondly! It is with great honor that St. Mary Interparochial School acknowledges Reverend John  Large as their Legacy Leader.
