Brooklyn Catholic Youth Day took place in St John’s Taffner Field House, where approximately 2,200 youth attended the “Put Out Into the Deep” themed event.

The New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (NYC DYCD) conducts monthly meetings in St. John’s venues, discussing how they plan to eliminate disparities in under-resourced communities through development programs. The meetings typically take place at the Marillac Auditorium, Marillac Terrace or in the Little Theater. Each of these spaces can accommodate parties 400+ guests.

“A prestigious university with state-of-the-art facilities, quality food, and the warm, hard working team at St. John’s Office of Conference Services made our event a very memorable one,” said Tom Grech, CEO of the Queens Chamber of Commerce.

Grech is referring to the Networking & Hoops event that entailed dinner & drinks, and speakers addressing the importance of supporting local businesses. The event then continued next door, at the SJU vs. Butler game in Carnesecca Arena.
