38th annual Deacon Dinner Auction & Gala
Saturday, April 30, 2022

The Deacon Dinner Auction & Gala is the one of the largest dinner auctions and the longest running dinner auction in the three-state region, as well one of the highest grossing dinner auctions of Catholic high school systems in the United States.  All proceeds from the annual dinner auction (with the exception of funds earmarked for the annual Special Project) go to support the annual operating budget of all St. John Paul II Catholic Schools.

Live Stream of the 37th Annual Shanley Deacon Dinner Live Auction

The worldwide live broadcast of the Live Auction occurred on Saturday evening, April 24 from the Holiday Inn Fargo.  

We invite you to revisit those moments by viewing the video footage below.  The broadcast begins at 19:45 into the video.

Please give us your feedback on the 2021 dinner auction

The St. John Paul II Catholic Schools, like all school communities, have been challenged this academic year in their mission to serve others due to cancelled food drives and school/local/international service projects. Accompanied with the timely remake of "Higher Love" by the Shanley Sandpebbles & Quintessence group, JPII families submitted images of their continued works of service from their own households; a testimony of extending that Higher Love to others for the glory of God.

2021 Covid protocols are continually being addresssed and revised to provide the healthiest, safest and most entertaining in-person dinner auction for all guests.  Click on the link below for the most up-to-date information.
