Biretta Ball

Dear Friends of the Cathedral,
On behalf of the community of Saint John’s Cathedral we would like to request the honor of your presence at our “Biretta Ball” on the evening of November 16, 2018 in front of St. John’s Cathedral.
This event is being held to honor and recognize all the rectors, past and present, who have contributed so much to keep our community at St. John’s ever so welcoming. This event will serve as a fundraiser as well to help raise needed funds for perpetual care for our beloved mother church of the diocese and to make necessary repairs to Msgr. Francis X. Singleton Hall.

It would definitely be an honor to have you and members of your family and/or businesses join us for this elegant evening amidst fine priests, who have shared in the prosperity and dedication to St. John’s Cathedral. All Rectors have been invited including His Eminence Cardinal Roger Mahony, His Excellency Bishop Armando X. Ochoa, and the many Monsignors and priests who have faithfully served our beloved cathedral. The attire will be a black tie event with clergy in their finest wardrobes – Cardinal, Bishops, and Monsignors in choir dress according to their title and guests in black tie and evening gowns. We sincerely hope you join us for this impressionable event. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us me at (559)273-9482 or by email at

 Mr. Michael J. Rabara,
Chairman Finance Council of Saint John’s Cathedral
Roman Catholic Diocese of Fresno
