Comedy & Cuisine
Comedy & Cuisine is the annual spring fund raiser for Saint Cecilia Cathedral School. Inaugurated in 1997, this evening of gourmet food, silent/live auctions, entertainment and socializing brings together school parents, parishioners, alumni and friends of the parish school. Hundreds of volunteers serve in a wide assortment of roles in a process that requires months of preparation. The original venue for this event was the Cathedral campus until 2006 when off-campus locations were used until a return to the campus in 2013. The Monsignor Graham Building has proved to be a favorite and familiar celebration location.
Comedy & Cuisine 2018
The 21st annual Comedy and Cuisine dinner and auction will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2018 in the Monsignor Graham Building on the Cathedral campus. Our theme, Taking Saint Cecilia to the Winner's Circle, salutes a proud tradition of personal presence and financial support for Saint Cecilia Cathedral Grade School and to continue its positive impact on our community.
The dedication, generosity and hard work over the years of the annual Comedy and Cuisine event has raised over $2 million in support of our nationally recognized, award-winning school. We invite you to show your appreciation for this proud tradition and the mission for educational excellence at Saint Cecilia Cathedral Grade School.
We’re bringing the band back together, back to Comedy and Cuisine! Bring your friends and dancing shoes to cut a rug to the Personics. The dancing will begin after the Live Auction, ending the night on a fun note! The Personics are a 4-piece cover band wrecking crew that everyone will want to dance to. They play a range from Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, and Neil Diamond to Matchbox 20, the B-52s, the Violent Femmes, the Go-Go's, the Stray Cats, Sheryl Crow, James, INXS, Jimmy Eat World, and Pink. A smattering of their work can be found at www.thepersonics.com
We want you and we need you!!

CathedralFest, our annual fall event, raises important monies for the parish while providing an opportunity for parish and community fellowship. Hundreds of volunteers from young to long time parishioners, as well as alumni, create an atmosphere that appeals to all ages. The signature big top tent serves as the center of a midway of booths and inflatables and the not-to-be-missed White Elephant sale, the silent auction and the gymnasium booths.
CathedralFest takes place on the first full weekend in October, beginning with the Blessing of the Animals and concluding with the Grand Prize raffle drawing.
