Here is the Table Sponsorship Levels in case you can’t make it the night of the Banquet. This is your opportunity to support the mission of young people building a culture of life in southern Louisville for Jesus through Mary!

Below is more details about the upcoming event:


Doors open at 6pm, followed by a VIP reception in the Main School Lobby. Dinner will begin at 7pm with the program immediately following. This event is the first substantial opportunity the Circle of Life Youth have had to share testimony about the impact Christ has been making in their lives! There is absolutely no charge to attend, however this family banquet is one of the most important events of the year and a professional financial appeal will be made.

A reservation is required for each person planning to attend, and you must RSVP no later than Sunday, October 9, by emailing us at or by calling the St. Athanasius parish office at (502) 969-3332.

This event is planned to fill to capacity, so RSVPs will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you plan to come, please get your RSVP in early!

Table sponsorship opportunities are listed on the enclosed reply card.
