The November 18th Gala offered supporters, graduates, faculty, staff, and students an opportunity to celebrate the university’s 38th year and to look toward its future. The Academic Convocation Mass, with principal celebrant University Chancellor Archbishop Timothy Broglio, included a graduation ceremony for the classes of 2020 and 2021.
The Gala program featured Bishop Robert Barron, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles and founder of Word on Fire, who received the Founders Award, CDU’s highest honor, for his use of the internet and social media to spread Christ’s teachings throughout the world. His work dovetails with CDU’s own mission to communicate the mind and heart of the church in a digital world. Watch the Gala program and Mass videos!
We look forward to celebrating with you in 2022!
