Archbishop’s Dinner

As we cannot gather this year for a dinner, we are launching a social media campaign, ‘Everyday Heroes,’  to share the positive stories of everyday works of service by Catholics.

Over the last several weeks, we have been assembling a collection of videos and stories. These inspirational stories will run on Archdiocese Facebook and Twitter accounts during the first three weeks of November. The three-week campaign will culminate with a Mass with Archbishop Richard Smith on November 21st.

We need your help to spread the word about the Everyday Heroes campaign. Please actively “like” our posts on Facebook and Twitter, share them, and comment on them. Perhaps also share your own story (or the story of someone you know who was of service) in the “comments” section. If you’re not on social media, talk to each other. Share your stories about something you did, that someone you know someone did to be of service. Let’s share our acts of service with each other and lift each other up.

Lastly, please accept our deepest gratitude for all that you have done and continue to do to serve and support our community in so many ways.  Thank you!
