ATLANTA—The year 2015 marks a special year for the Catholic Center at Georgia Tech with celebration of its 30th anniversary.
The current facility on 4th Street, in the heart of the Georgia Tech campus, was dedicated in October of 1985. Thirty years later, the Catholic Center is busy as ever and continues to welcome with open arms the growing family of God to its spiritual home.
The Georgia Tech Catholic community will celebrate during the anniversary weekend, Oct. 2-4.
Helluva Catholic Gala
The Helluva Catholic Gala will be Friday, Oct. 2, at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, 800 Spring St., NW, Atlanta. The gala includes a silent auction, cocktail reception, a short program and dinner and dancing with the Infinity Show Band providing musical entertainment.
The gala begins at 7 p.m. with former Georgia Tech men’s basketball Coach Bobby Cremins and Father Josh Allen, chaplain, as the evening’s hosts.
A variety of ticket levels and sponsorships are available. For more information or to purchase, visit www.gtcatholic.org.
All proceeds of the 30th Anniversary Gala go directly to support the center’s mission to build the Catholic faith in those seeking to live a Christ-centered life at Georgia Tech and beyond.
Tailgate Party, Anniversary Mass
On Saturday, Oct. 3, there will be a Tailgate Party at the Catholic Center, 172 4th St., NW, Atlanta, prior to the Georgia Tech football game against the University of North Carolina.
On Sunday, Oct. 4, Bishop David Talley will celebrate the anniversary Mass at the center. Mass will be at 11:30 a.m.
