A heartfelt ‘thank you’ to everyone who played a part in the Legacy Gala

Annette “Mickey” Lentz, archdiocesan chancellorWords cannot begin to adequately express the many “thank you’s” I want to extend to those who made the archdiocese’s inaugural Legacy Gala on April 16 a tremendous success.

From the individuals who planned and executed the event to all who attended the evening at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis and all who watched it online, I offer my heartfelt thanks.

The financial support so many individuals and corporate sponsors offered for our archdiocesan Catholic schools, Catholic Charities and Bishop Simon Bruté College Seminary in Indianapolis demonstrates how much our faith community values these ministries. Your generosity helped us raise $345,000.

I offer thanks to our Legacy Gala honorary chairpersons, Jack and Casie Doyle and Jerry and Rosie Semler, and our event chairpersons, John and Melissa Duffy.

I thank Archbishop Charles C. Thompson, Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin and Msgr. William F. Stumpf, our vicar general, for their support.

I also wanted to offer special thanks to Rita Maguire, Cathy Mayer, Dana Stone and Jolinda Moore, who were instrumental in making sure the planning and evening went off without a hitch.

Also, thanks to Rafael Sanchez for serving as our entertaining emcee.

As we move forward with this annual event, I hope and pray the Legacy Gala will continue to offer an opportunity for many of us to share our blessings with the Church in central and southern Indiana.

God bless!

—Annette “Mickey” Lentz, archdiocesan chancellor
