Apostles Legacy Gala

T

he Apostles Legacy Gala celebrates the legacy of Mother Clelia Merloni, Foundress of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The 2016 Connecticut Legacy Gala was held on April 28, 2016, at New Haven Lawn Club. The honorary chairpersons were Kevin and Marianne Lawlor. 

Formerly known as the Apostles Legacy Dinner, the inaugural event was held in June, 2008 in Hamden, CT, where the Apostles' United States Provincialate is located. Because the Apostles also have a strong presence in St. Louis, Missouri, the Apostles Legacy Dinner was introduced there as well in 2009.
