The Catholic Cultural Heritage Center threw a celebratory gala on October 4 to mark the opening and serve as a preview for the long-awaited exhibit, “The Archbishop Wore Combat Boots: The Life & Ministry of Archbishop Philip M. Hannan.” Held at the picturesque Old Ursuline Convent Museum, the patron party began at 6:45 p.m. with bottles of champagne and hors d’oeuvres.

Barbara Turner Windhorst, chair of the Catholic Cultural Heritage Center, gave the presentation in St. Mary’s Chapel honoring the Reverend Monsignor Crosby W. Kern. Archbishop Aymond presented the Monsignor posthumously with the Francisco Cardinal Marchisano Award, which was accepted on his behalf by Archbishop-emeritus Alfred Hughes. The gala began promptly at 8, featuring a patriotic theme, complete with ice sculptures shaped like combat boots. Bistreaux at the Bank provided the evening’s cuisine – jazzed up versions of Archbishop Hannan’s favorite meals – and libations by Republic Beverage included specialty cocktails designed specifically for the event. Guests serenaded by the Pfister Sisters were free to wander and preview the exhibit. Co-chairs of the event Janice Foulks and Errin Erdal-Bellan and their talented committee deemed the event a great success. The exhibit will be open at the Old Ursuline Convent Museum through May 2014.
