Annual Padre Night raises money for Corpus Christi College
|(John Ng / Special to The B.C. Catholic)|
The Knights of Columbus hosted over 50 Lower Mainland priests for a catered dinner at the Columbus Circle dinner hall on Granville Street June 4. Msgr. Pedro Lopez-Gallo was honoured with thunderous applause when it was mentioned that he was celebrating the diamond jubilee of his ordination.
Also, Knight Tom Kearney won the 50 / 50 jackpot, $245; he quickly donated his winnings to further Catholic education at Corpus Christi College.
Msgr. Mark Hagemoen, president of the college, gratefully accepted the cash.
