2022 Annual Fundraising Breakfast
Nov 19, 2022
22nd Annual Fundraising Breakfast in support of St. Mark’s College and Corpus Christi College
The importance of Catholic higher education, which strives to meet our young people “where they are” on the journeys that are life and faith, is perhaps more important to the future of the church than it has ever been.
We provide a Catholic centre at UBC and extensive education options while receiving no government funding. Funds raised at the Breakfast will benefit financial assistance programs and technology upgrades for students.
Keynote Speaker : Greg Kennedy “Living Poetically: The Vocation of a Faithful Heart”
Greg Kennedy practices the joyful disciplines of poetry, spiritual direction, retreat leadership and farming on the graceful land of the Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph, Ontario. A Ph.D. in philosophy and a Masters in theology allow him to question lovingly both Heaven and Earth.
Inspired by the Spirit that moves through all faiths, he finds his belief instructed by a diversity of lived wisdoms.
Greg is the author of several books, including An Ontology of Trash (SUNY Press 2006); Reupholstered Psalms volumes I-III (Novalis 2020-2022); and Amazing Friendships between Animals and Saints (Novalis 2021).
