Each year, the Archbishop's Dinner for Education provides an opportunity for us to gather and recognize the dedication of our Catholic school educators, to thank those who support our schools and to raise funds to provide needs-based scholarships to help students attend a Catholic school of their families’ choice.

Thank you to our 2023 Dinner Chairpersons!

Thank you to CHI Health for supporting the 2022 Archbishop’s Dinner for Education as a Premier Sponsor! The funds provided by CHI Health allow our Catholic high schools to offer scholarships to students interested in a career in healthcare. These scholarships are in addition to the Archbishop Scholars program introduced at the 2021 Archbishop’s Dinner for Education. We are so grateful for this exciting partnership with CHI Health as we work together to establish more opportunities for accessible Catholic education in northeastern Nebraska.
