Due to concerns about COVID-19 caused by the coronavirus, The Division of University Advancement at The Catholic University of America has made the decision to cancel or indefinitely postpone in-person events sponsored by University Advancement and the Alumni Association — including some school-based events which we had promoted — through May 14. These events are:

  • March 16, 2020: Gratus: A Celebration of Benefactors and Friends
  • March 17, 2020: TRS The End of the Dark Ages lecture by Mark Clark
  • March 18, 2020: School of Arts and Sciences Life as Vocation lecture series 
  • March 19, 2020: Catholic University chapter of Phi Beta Kappa presents Fr. Columba Stewart, OSB: Two lectures by the manuscript expert 
  • March 21, 2020: Cardinal Days of Service regional events in Washington D.C., Baltimore, Boston, New York, and Philadelphia
  • March 23, 2020: NCSSS: St. Louise de Marillac Mass and Reception
  • March 29, 2020: A Taste of Brookland  
  • March 31, 2020: James H. and Mary F. Moran Endowed Professorship Installation celebration
  • April 1, 2020: We will celebrate Founders Day virtually without a giving challenge, and we are canceling on-campus and regional celebrations in Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Boston, New York, and Philadelphia.
  • April 7, 2020: The Senators Club Luncheon
  • April 17, 2020: Captain John E. Smathers Endowed Scholarship Celebration
  • April 18, 2020: Athletics Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony
  • May 6, 2020: St. Thomas Aquinas Society Luncheon
  • May 14, 2020: Catholic University Alumni and Friends AIA Conference and Reception

We made these decisions to safeguard the health of our guests and our on-campus community in conjunction with the University’s decision to move to online instruction for students through the end of the term. 

Please be assured that we will continue to evaluate this ongoing situation. Any additional postponements or cancellations of future events will be communicated as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding, and for your continued support of Catholic University.
