Special Events

We love to get our friends and family together, and our special events give us the chance to do just that. Some of our events are opportunities to support our students and schools, and others are simply casual community get-togethers. We welcome you to join us at any of these great events.


Circle of Celebration

Holy Family’s premier event, the Circle of Celebration is a formal dinner and auction fundraiser for all of Holy Family Catholic Schools. The Circle of Celebration serves as the primary source of funding for Holy Family’s annual budget and is critical to providing adequate resources and tuition assistance for Holy Family students. Not only is this an exciting night out, but it’s instrumental in our ability to move Catholic education forward in Dubuque. For more information, click here.


Music, Art & Waffle Breakfast

Each year we celebrate the importance of Catholic schools in our community, state and nation, and we close the week by inviting the community to a waffle breakfast and art fair at Wahlert Catholic High School. You’ll enjoy the world’s best waffles as well as music and artwork from students throughout Holy Family. For more information, click here.
