After missing out the last two years due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 22nd annual Knights of the Southern Cross Archbishop’s Dinner will be held on Friday, August 19, 2022 at Moonee Valley Racecourse commencing at 7.00pm. The Guest Speaker is Emeritus Professor Greg Craven AO, most recently of Australian Catholic University, the compere will be recently retired race caller Bryan Martin, and the Auctioneer will be real estate agent Bryan Cain.
Since inception the Fund has raised in excess of $1.3 million to assist the education of our seminarians and priests in Victoria. Even during 2020 and 2021, without being able to host the dinner, the fund raised $60,000 each year for the seminarians. Cost is $150.00 per ticket. The promotional poster and booking form are available here. RSVP by August 5.
On Pentecost Sunday, the Archbishop’s Dinner was officially launched at Corpus Christi College Seminary in Carlton, with Mass and lunch featuring seminarians, staff, PSEF Committee Members and sponsors, where not only was the Dinner promoted, but a tribute was paid to past Committee Member and Seminary volunteer Val Sumner, who passed away in July 2021. An article about the launch was featured on the Corpus Christi College website.
We have also launched an official Facebook page for the KSC Priests Support and Education Fund, where people can keep up to date with the latest information. Please like, follow, and share.
The Organising Committee for the Knights of the Southern Cross Priests Support and Education Fund Archbishop’s Dinner look forward to seeing you at this year’s KSC Archbishop’s Dinner.
