“20 Years of Impact” Commemorative Magazine

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of JPCatholic's founding, we are producing a beautiful commemorative magazine to honor our mission to impact culture for Christ, chronicling our first two decades with words and photographs. The magazine will be given to every attendee at the gala, and will be widely distributed to our students, alumni, their families, and our Escondido community. We invite you to consider sponsorship of this commemorative magazine with a message reflecting your family’s and/or your business’s financial support of our scholarship program.
