Mission House
& St. John the Evangelist Hall

You are cordially invited to join us for the annual Rose Gala in a revised format this year!

Having listened to your feedback, this year, the Gala will take place at the Mission House and St. John the Evangelist Church Hall in Los Angeles. The Silent Auction and refreshments will be held at the Mission House and the dinner next door at the hall. The dinner will be catered. The new hours for the event will be 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM.

We decided to utilize our own resources more this year so that your donations go even further to support directly our missionary service. We also wanted to accommodate the many requests of those who would love to participate in the event but prefer not to drive in the evening.

This year, we will present the Ernst Ophuls Award to Peter and Joy Newburn. Peter and Joy served with their family in Cameroon and have been very involved in the life of LMH upon completing their mission. They are generous with their resources and time. They are monthly supporters and help us raise funds and awareness every summer when they volunteer to be Mission Cooperative Plan (MCP) speakers. In addition, Joy is serving on the LMH Board of Directors and is a valued member of various committees.  The St. Therese of Lisieux Award will be presented to  Ms. Kathy Clay. Ms. Clay has regularly and consistently supported LMH for over 30 years. She belongs to St. Cornelius Parish in Long Beach. 

The Gala is a way for us to meet and thank you in person and to seek your continued support for our service in mission dioceses. It is also an opportunity for you to bid on unique art works which we have brought from various mission locations.

Sponsorship cards will be mailed out in June, but you can already make your gift through our website here or by clicking on the button below and selecting ROSE GALA SPONSORSHIP from the scroll-down menu.  

Tickets will be availble for purchase in August. We will limit the number of participants to 75. So, when you get your invitation to purchase tickets, do not wait, or you’ll miss out. 

Your support will make our current service in Ghana, Uganda, and Peru possible and it will help us recruit and train new mission candidates.

We continue to receive invitations from bishops in mission dioceses, and your support will help us respond "yes" to those requests for help!

We count on you!
