Archbishop's Dinner on for Oct. 30

Fundraiser to support downtown drop-in centre
Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, had dinner with 976 people last year as part of a social fundraiser. The money raised, some $130,000, supported the Catholics Come Home project. This year's Archbishop's Dinner will benefit The Door is Open drop-in centre in the Downtown Eastside. BCC file photo.
After a resounding success last year, the annual Archbishop's Dinner is returning. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
