CCF 25th Anniversary: A Conversation with Anne Cullen Miller

Anniversary Celebration

On April 26, 2018, at the Hilton Minneapolis, more than 800 Minnesota Catholics came to the table to celebrate the community impact made possible by collective, Catholic philanthropy. It truly was a blessed event. We’ve included a few of the highlights on this page. Enjoy!

Why the table?

Jesus built an extraordinary community by reclining at ordinary dinner tables and breaking bread. Bishop Caggiano, our keynote speaker, urges Catholics to do likewise.

Your dining table is a powerful tool for building community. It calls you to share — your food, your family, your friends, and yes, your financial resources. We hope you’ll take Bishop Caggiano’s message to heart. The strength of our Catholic community depends on your table and the sharing it inspires.

Rediscovering the power of the table starts by extending an invitation as simple as “come to the table.”

A Prayer for the Table

Lord, please bless this table.
Bless the food that rests upon it.
Bless the family and friends that sit around it.
Bless the conversation that unfolds across it.

May this table be a place of welcome and grace.
May it be a place of respect and belonging.
May it be a place where community begins.

You, Lord, are made known to us
In the breaking of the bread
And in the sharing of our very lives.

We ask that You bless this table now as we pray,
Bless us, O Lord,…
