The Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) sponsored a free concert at our 7th annual Sounds of Sacred Music on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 from 7pm to 8pm. A private VIP Reception for all CEF benefactors was held with Bishop Joseph Siegel prior to the event. The concert featured the student choirs of Kankakee, Bishop McNamara Catholic School and Lockport, St. Joseph School. The audience also heard personal witness from local grade school students while Bishop Siegel recognized loyal CEF donors of any gift denomination who have consistently supported the CEF for the last 3, 5 and 10 or more years.
