Featuring Matt Maher, Inspirational Speaker and Performer

Join us for an inspirational evening featuring a virtual performance by Christian recording artist Matt Maher

Juno Award winning, nine-time Grammy nominee and four-time GMA Dove Award winner, Maher is a staple in the artistic and songwriting community. His inspirational songs have garnered multiple radio successes, writing and recording songs such as “Lord, I Need You,” “Because He Lives (Amen),” “Alive & Breathing,” and many others. Matt achieved a career highlight in 2013 when he performed at the Vigil Mass presided by Pope Francis, in front of a crowd of three million people, for World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro. Two years later he performed again for the Pope in downtown Philadelphia as part of the World Meeting of Families, appearing along with The Fray, Aretha Franklin, Juanes, Jim Gaffigan, and Mark Wahlberg, among others.


Let us thank all those who teach in Catholic schools. Educating is an act of love; it is like giving life. – Pope Francis

The Foundation to Advance Catholic Education (FACE) continues to meet the original mission of the St. Mary’s Education Fund in supporting scholarships for children. The Foundation to Advance Catholic Education strives to support welcoming more culturally and economically diverse students to our Catholic Schools, while addressing the sustained increase in the demand for financial assistance for families seeking to send their children to our schools. The goal of the Foundation to Advance Catholic Education is to ensure that no child is deprived of the opportunity to attend one of the Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Fall River due to financial hardship. A commitment to FACE is an investment in the future education and dreams of hundreds of children from all across the Diocese.
