About the Caritas SocietyCaritas Logo Annapolis St Johns College

A charitable community membership organization, Caritas Society of St. John’s College, Inc. has two purposes:

  • To support St. John’s by awarding financial aid grants and book grants to students who do not have sufficient funding to meet college expenses and might have to withdraw from school
  • To offer events and activities that promote enduring relationships between St. John’s and the larger Annapolis community.

Membership is open to anyone interested in the activities of Caritas. More than 200 people from the Annapolis region and the college are Caritas members.

Membership Luncheon Program Meetings

End of Year Luncheon Meeting

Friday, May 18, 2018, 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Randall Hall Dining Room
Cost: $25. Make your reservations. See below.

The final Caritas luncheon meeting of the year is always a festive affair. Members celebrate the camaraderie that underpins Caritas’s commitment to St. John’s and mission of financially helping students who cannot meet college expenses. This year’s highlight will be a wine tasting of vintages from Bistro Freres donated by owner Sue McDonough, a longtime Caritas member. The winery in Languedoc Rousillon, France was the avocation of her late husband Jeff Bishop, for many years head of development at St. John’s. Local wine expert Todd Ross will talk about his friendship with Jeff and the winery’s history, then give a wine tasting primer. In keeping with the Caritas end-of-year tradition of “hats on for Caritas,” hats, though not required, will certainly be admired.
