Patriots’ Matthew Slater to speak
at FACE Fall Scholarship Dinner

WESTPORT, Mass. — The Catholic schools in the Diocese of Fall River serve almost 7,000 students in 20 schools. Students are challenged to achieve their highest potential, and are called to grow in faith and academic excellence. They are future leaders and the core of our community.


Each year, the Foundation to Advance Catholic Education’s Fall Scholarship Dinner brings the community together to raise much needed scholarship funds for Catholic school children in need. 

Co-chairs John Feitelberg, president of HUB International, and Janna Lafrance of Lafrance Hospitality invite all to the 25th Annual FACE Fall Dinner which will be held on Tuesday, October 1 at White’s of Westport. 

It has been announced that Roger Sullivan, chairman of the Diocese of Fall River’s Central Catholic Schools Board, will receive the Timothy J. Cotter Award this year in recognition of his tremendous leadership and unwavering support of the Catholic schools.

The featured guest speaker at this year’s event will be Matthew Slater (left), three-time NFL Super Bowl champion and special teams captain for the New England Patriots. 

All proceeds from this event go directly to student scholarships across the diocese. 

Businesses and individuals are asked to consider becoming a sponsor and helping make a difference for hundreds of students and families in need. So many young lives will be changed for the better with your support!
