The 2017 Provincial's Dinner
On April 18, Jesuits and friends gathered to honour Magis award recipients, Bruno and Eleanor Arnold, and Golden Jesuit Jubilarian Fr. Monty Williams, SJ, at the 11th Annual Provincial's Dinner. The Arnold's, active parishioners at Our Lady of Lourdes in Toronto, have generously contributed to the parish's fundraising raffle, paid the remnant of the dome and roof renovation, and supported the parish's most recent financial campaign. Mr. Arnold served as chair of this campaign which helped repair the parish's building foundation and structure.
Their generosity has allowed the Jesuits to deepen, enhance, and expand ministry to God's people in this large active parish, in a neighbourhood that is a crossroad of Toronto and even of Canada.
The annual fundraising dinner helps raise funds for men in formation, acknowledges Jesuits celebrating 50 years in the Society, and presents the Magis award to noteworthy recipients. The Mass of Thanksgiving took place at The Church of the Good Shepherd, followed by dinner at Le Parc Dining and Banquet Hall in Thornhill.
