Celebrating Hispanic Leadership at the 16th Annual Noche de Gala

On Friday, October 3, the 16th Annual Noche de Gala, celebrating Hispanic leadership in the Archdiocese of Chicago, will take place at the White Eagle Banquet Hall in Niles. Cardinal George will be there to celebrate and honor this year’s theme, “Celebrating the Joy of the Gospel”, in keeping with the Archdiocesan Strategic Pastoral Plan focusing on the Year of the Sacraments.

The goal of the Gala is to celebrate Hispanic Leadership at both the parish and Archdiocesan levels. Among the honorees that evening will be Rev. Esequiel Sanchez, who will receive the Blessed Pope John XXIII Award in recognition of priestly dedication to Hispanic ministry. Fr. Sanchez, among his many accomplishments, was the founder of this evening of celebration.

I encourage all the leadership serving in Hispanic Ministry to take advantage of this great opportunity to thank and acknowledge a person at your parish that has made a difference and someone the community can recognize and honor.

Proceeds from this event will be used to establish a fund that will respond to the various ministerial needs present within Hispanic Ministry.

The ticket price of $75 is a great value and I truly believe that makes this celebration more accessible to everyone.  Free parking and open bar are included. Entertainment and dancing follow the awards ceremony.

Thanking you in advance for your many prayers and support.

For more information, please call Maria Luevano, 312-534-8371 or visit

I look forward to seeing you there!
