Dear Friends,

On April 18, 2017, we will host the 11th Annual Jesuit Provincial’s Dinner. At this year’s dinner we will be honouring Eleanor and Bruno Arnold as well as our Jubilarian, Father Geoffrey (Monty) Williams, SJ.

Since coming to Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, through their support and encouragement, Mr. and Mrs. Arnold have allowed the Jesuits to deepen, enhance and expand the ministry to God’s people. Their support has been very much appreciated by the late pastor Fr. Bill Addley, SJ, and by the current pastor Fr. John Sullivan, SJ.  

Over the years, Fr. Williams has been involved in Jesuit formation and with the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola by giving retreats around the world as well as through publishing. His last book, entitled: “Stepping into Mystery: Four Approaches to a Spiritual Life,” was published by Novalis.

The celebration will begin with a Mass at The Church of the Good Shepherd, 21 Simonston Blvd, Thornhill, Ontario at 5:00 p.m. Following the Mass, there will be a pre-dinner reception at 6:30 p.m., which will give you an opportunity to meet some of the Jesuits you have supported over the years. Dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m. The reception and dinner will be held at Le Parc Dining and Banquet Hall, 8432 Leslie St., Thornhill, Ontario.

The cost of the evening is $150.00 per person, (with a tax receipt of $100.00 for a single ticket), or $1,200.00 for a table of eight, (with a tax receipt of $800.00 for a table). The proceeds from the dinner will go towards funding a scholarship for a Jesuit in formation.  

To order your ticket(s), please complete and mail the enclosed reply before March 1, 2017. The cheque or money order should be made payable to the Jesuit Development Office.

While it may not be practical for some people to attend, if you could, we would be delighted to have you grace us with your presence.

Last year’s dinner was very successful. It brought together a large number of friends and supporters of the Jesuits and the Jubilarians, many friendships were renewed and new acquaintances made.

I hope you will be able to join our celebration.

Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. Peter Bisson, SJ
