The 2016 Scotch Nosing & Dinner
Wednesday, November 16, 2016
The Albany Club | Toronto, ON
The Jesuits in English Canada hosted their 4th Annual Scotch Nosing and Dinner fundraiser at Toronto’s Albany Club on November 16.
The sold-out event featured the very capable and affable Scotch presenter David A. Wilson, award-winning author and professor in the Department of History and the Celtic Studies Program, at the University of Toronto. Wilson walked guests through four of the finest Scotch selections.
Acting Provincial, Fr. Winston Rye, SJ, spoke of the Jesuits’ work in a variety of ministries from St. John’s to Vancouver, while Fr. Bert Foliot, SJ, National Director of the Jesuit Development Office, spoke about the Jesuits’ continued commitment to reconciliation with Canada’s Indigenous brothers and sisters.
Special thanks to our generous sponsors: the law firm of Blakeney Henneberry Murphy & Galligan, HUB International, and JIT Automation Inc., and our table sponsors.
Funds raised from the evening will go to support senior Jesuits who, after many years of working in our ministries, now reside in our infirmary in Pickering, where they continue to work in the ministry of prayer.
