Circle of Grace Reception
Father Jack Hickey founded Dismas House in 1974 with a vision to reconcile formerly incarcerated to society through the development of a supportive community.
Over 48 years later, that vision is still being upheld with the truth that second chances change lives.
Dismas House is proud to honor Father Jack Hickey with this event to raise financial support for our residents through comprehensive programming.
The Father Jack Hickey Circle of Grace Reception recognizes those who have so generously committed to an annual gift of at least $1,000.
