New Catholic University holds inaugural gala

.- New Catholic University (NCU) held its inaugural gala Sept. 25 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla.

More than 170 supporters and volunteers joined NCU founders Derry Connolly, Philippe Dardaine, Wes Fach, Scott McKenna and Ed Snow for a benefit dinner for the new private university.

The evening featured speeches by Auxiliary Bishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Diego; Fr. Darrin Merlino, CMF; and NCU co-founder Connolly, slated to be the university’s first president. Jerry Usher, program director for Catholic Answers Radio, served as the evening’s master of ceremonies. Fr. Leo Celano concluded the evening with a prayer and blessing.

NCU is scheduled to open in the fall of 2005. The university will offer degree programs in technology, business and mass media communications. In all academic disciplines, it hopes to foster an entrepreneurial spirit and encourage leadership and innovation, guided by Catholic ethical teachings.

“NCU’s academic model is very novel,” Connolly said. “It’s a niche school and it’s not for everyone. You have to like the idea of working in a business.”

He has placed the university’s ultimate success in the hands of God.
