Annual Fundraiser Supports Students
Oct 8, 2015
Responding to Pope Francis’ Call to Support Catholic Higher Education
This past weekend, friends and supporters of Corpus Christi College and Saint Mark’s College gathered for our 15th Annual Fundraising Breakfast to help support Catholic Higher Education in Vancouver. Funds raised support student merit-based scholarships and bursaries for financially needy students.
The audience heard from Dr. Mark G. McGowan, who delivered a thought-provoking and inspirational talk about why Pope Francis has become such a strong advocate for Catholic education, and how we can all answer his call. Attendees enjoyed a delicious breakfast, as well as a stirring performance by the Corpus Christi Chamber Choir.
Watch Dr. McGowan’s talk below and share in the experience.
“Authentic Faith—which is never comfortable—always involves a deep desire to change the world, to transmit values, to leave this earth better than when we found it.” – Pope Francis, from Dr. McGowan’s speech
