Event Details

Join us for the 17th Annual Foundation of Faith Event: Here I Am Lord on Thursday, September 7, 2023, at the new Starlight Event Center from 5-9pm.

This year our guest will be Fr. Chase Hilgenbrinck, an American soccer player who walked away from his professional career to serve God. He shares his story about trusting God’s will and what happens when the jersey comes off after God calls an athlete away from their sport.

The Foundation of Faith Event is a lively gathering and includes a 5pm cocktail reception, cash bar, seated dinner with complimentary wine, and a fun live auction. Dr. Jose Manuel and Maureen de la Rosa will be honored with the 8th Annual Dei Gratia Award, which recognizes an individual, couple, or organization for their servant leadership, outstanding contribution to the Diocese of El Paso, and dedication to being good stewards of God’s grace.

A special VIP event with Father Chase for sponsors of $2,500 and up is scheduled for Wednesday, September 6 from 6-9pm and join us for Mass with Fr. Chase and the students of Cathedral High School, on Thursday, September 7 at St. Patrick Cathedral at 10:30am.

Be there for all of it! Tickets are $125 per person and $1,250 per table. Sponsorship opportunities are available from $2,500 to $20,000.
