Celebration of Light

Our Celebration of Light won’t be a dinner this year; it won’t allow us to showcase our outstanding students, or provide an opportunity to join together as a Catholic community. Still, it will allow all advocates of Catholic education to support our schools. Geography, invitations, space, conflicts, or other social commitments won’t be obstacles in participation. But we still need YOU!

Nazareth Guild’s mission isn’t waiting for the next phase. Our work isn’t stopping because of Covid-19. Our schools need our support now, more than ever. We continue to seek full enrollment for all schools, especially those serving the underserved and under-resourced, by offering tuition assistance grants to students who cannot afford the full cost of tuition. Additionally, grant funding is available to our Catholic schools for the physical buildings, and academic excellence is supported through school partnership grants, teacher initiative grants, and continuing education opportunities.

Please contact our office at 509.744.3257 or visit our donation page to make a donation to help support our Catholic schools of eastern Washington.   


The 2019 Celebration of Light Gala was a huge success due to your generous support. Take a look back at last year’s event.

Ann Doherty


In order to honor Ann, the Nazareth Guild created the Ann Doherty Award for Lifetime Achievement in Catholic Education. Ann’s lifetime was filled with the grace and power of Catholic education and this award is given to an individual who has also given his or her life to the promotion and support of Catholic education.
