21st Annual Fundraising Breakfast
Oct 16, 2021
You are invited to the 21st 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.
Date: Saturday, October 16, 2021
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: To be confirmed*
*Details on the format for the event will be announced at a later date. Although we are hopeful to celebrate this event with everyone in person, we will follow Public Health orders and guidelines in planning the Fundraising Breakfast.
Regardless of the delivery or occupancy limits, there will be a live stream option available for anyone who is interested.[/letter]
