The Church, through the upcoming Synod on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment, is currently asking herself how she can lead young people to recognize and accept the call to the fullness of life and love.
Accordingly, Bishop McGrattan has chosen Youth & Vocations - Their Faith, The Church as the theme for the 2017 Bishop's Dinner. It is Bishop's Hope to establish a new focus and vision for the Dinner going forward as the Annual Diocesan Charity Gala. Henry & Sharon van der Sloot are Honourary Co-Chairs of the Planning Committee, which is working hard to establish Bishop McGrattan's new vision for the event.
This year the keynote speaker will be Michael Chiasson of Access 52 Ministries, and we will be honoured with musical entertainment by Canadian Christian recording artist Janelle. With a focus on youth and their vibrant future, this promises to be a Bishop's Dinner like no other.
