FALMOUTH — Once again supporters of Catholic education are invited to enjoy a winter brunch on Cape Cod complete with food and festivities, while at the same time help Catholic school students in the Fall River Diocese.

The 12th annual Foundation to Advance Catholic Education, Inc., (or FACE) Winter Brunch will be hosted by Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V. It will take place Sunday, February 5, 2017, at the Coonamessett Inn in Falmouth.  Proceeds from the event benefit FACE, which provides need-based scholarships to children attending Catholic schools on Cape Cod and throughout southeastern Massachusetts.

Mary and Larry McGrath, Esq. are serving as co-chairs for this year’s event and with their committee are planning an afternoon of delicious food, children’s entertainment and fun.

Beginning at 11:30 a.m., the festivities will include an award winning Sunday brunch buffet, silent auction, mystery prizes and a fun-filled raffle with fantastic prizes.

In his letter of invitation to the Winter Brunch, Bishop da Cunha notes the ongoing challenge to maintain Catholic schools and to provide a quality Catholic education to thousands of children.

“We know that with the generous help of dedicated people like you, we can meet this challenge.  Together we will continue making Catholic education available to as many children as we possibly can,” writes the Bishop.

The FACE winter brunch offers a great opportunity to help support Catholic education in the Fall River Diocese. For details, including ticket information and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Jane Robin at 508-759-3566.
