A great time was had by all at the 5nd Annual Archbishop’s Dinner which was held last Wednesday, October 11 at the Cunard Centre overlooking the Halifax harbour. Over 450 dinner guests shared stories, enjoyed a delicious meal, and took part in a live auction that included unique items like a private dinner party catered by a local chef and a painting by our own Archbishop Mancini. Attendees heard from special guest speaker, prominent local developer Wadih Fares, who spoke about the influence his faith has on both his family and business life.
This year we are pleased to welcome several special guests to our 6th Assembly of the People of God.

Bishop Michael Pryse, the Lutheran bishop of the Eastern Synod of ELCIC will co-preside with local Catholic bishops at services in Toronto, Kitchener, Ottawa, Sudbury, Lunenburg and Montreal.
