Deo Gratias Background
Deo Gratias is an annual donor recognition event that began in 1945. Typically scheduled on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, Deo Gratias begins with a Mass of Thanksgiving at the Center for Pastoral Leadership and is followed by brunch and a presentation. Close to 300 guests attend Deo Gratias, all of whom are invited based on their generous giving to the ministries of the Diocese of Cleveland.

Why we honor Archbishop Hoban
Expectations were modest when Reverend Edward F. Hoban became Bishop of Cleveland on November 2, 1945, given that he was 67 years old. Bishop Hoban proved to be a dramatic leader; one of vision coupled with action. He directed a period of growth and expansion in this Diocese that remains unmatched. His hand can still be felt in education, religious vocations, and charity. In recognition of his extraordinary service, Pope Pius XII bestowed upon him the title of Archbishop; an honor usually reserved for prelates who lead an archdiocese.
