WATERTOWN, MA (May 14, 2013) - The Boston Archdiocesan Choir School will celebrate its 50Th anniversary of providing a unique and affordable education to boys from throughout the Boston area. To honor the 50th anniversary, the school will hold a Gala Dinner on Saturday, June, 1 at the Cambridge Marriott Hotel, Kendall Square. The event will be emceed by local television anchor Scott Wahle.

The Choir School will honor Father Robert Reed. Fr. Reed is a priest of the Archdiocese of Boston, ordained in 1985, and since 2005 has served as the President of the CatholicTV Network. In addition to his leadership responsibilities, Fr. Reed is also the host of the game show WOW: The CatholicTV Challenge, the reality series House+Home, he prays The Rosary with the television audience three times daily from various locations around the world, co-hosts the network's signature talk show, This is the Day, and celebrates Daily Mass numerous times throughout the month on national television. Father Reed also provides commentary for various national and international events from installations and ordinations to papal liturgies.

"We are thrilled at the Choir School to have the continuous support of Father Reed and we are so excited that he agreed to be honored at this year's Gala Dinner," commented John Robinson, the school's Director of Music. "Father Reed is a highly-regarded member of the Choir School's advisory board and has celebrated many Masses at the school including last year's Mass on Christmas Day. He has a deep appreciation of beautiful liturgy and the best of sacred music, as borne out by his own fine singing of the Priest's parts. His leadership of CatholicTV has advanced Catholic television programming in this country. We have been most pleased that CatholicTV has been so receptive to broadcasting events involving the Choir of St. Paul's. Fr. Reed is a true leader in our Catholic community and we are very excited to honor him at this year's Gala on June 1."

"I was certainly surprised and genuinely honored to be selected as this year's honoree," remarked Fr. Reed. "The Choir School is a venerable institution within the Archdiocese and is a continual reminder to me and to all who worship at St. Paul Church of our need for beauty in worship and continuity with our long Catholic liturgical tradition that has consistently raised people's hearts and minds to God, and has fostered life-long commitment to the Church. The boys perform a very real ministry, evangelizing by the gifted sound of their voices, and the training for a life of Faith that the Choir School provides is incomparable."

The Boston Archdiocesan Choir School is currently the only Catholic boys choir school in the United States. It seeks to embrace the great cathedral school tradition, as it unites a rigorous musical and academic curriculum with the Catholic faith and moral tradition.
