Event Details

You are invited to the 18th Annual Fundraising Breakfast in support of Corpus Christi-St. Mark's. Funds raised will benefit student scholarship and financial assistance programs.

The importance of Catholic higher education, which receives no government funding whatsoever while striving to meet our young people “where they are” on the journeys that are life and faith, is perhaps more important to the future of the church than it has ever been. This has been continuously stressed by Pope Francis, who encourages us to constantly be engaged in a spirit of encounter and dialogue, with each other, and with the world.

 

Keynote Speaker: Sister Marie Zarowny, SSA

“Unless someone guides me” (Acts 8:31) How are we formed to proclaim the Good News in today’s world?
Sister Marie Zarowny, SSA, is a social justice advocate, educator, and Province Co-Leader for the Sisters of Saint Ann Western Canada region. For over 40 years, Sr. Marie has been dedicated to fostering opportunities that sustain and deepen the commitment of people engaged in faith-based education and social change. Since their arrival in BC in 1858, the pioneering Sisters of Saint Ann have worked to support education, expand healthcare, provide spiritual accompaniment, and alleviate poverty in Canada and beyond. They established 38 schools and 10 hospitals throughout BC, Alaska, and the Yukon. In 2016, the Sisters of Saint Ann contributed $3 million to the Colleges to establish the Marie Anne Blondin Chair in Theology. The endowment represents the largest in the Colleges’ history and the largest gift received by a Catholic college in BC. The generous gift from the Sisters supports the Colleges’ mission to educate lifelong learners who are prepared to engage with the intellectual, professional and social challenges of our times.

St. Mark's College at UBC

About the Community of St. Mark’s at the University of British Columbia

The community of St. Mark's (St. Mark's/Corpus Christi College and St. Mark's Parish) is steeped in a rich legacy of faith, the result of more than ninety years of continuous Catholic presence at the University of British Columbia. This presence arises from the vision of our founders, the Basilian Fathers, who for many years taught in the university’s academic divisions, helped shape its athletic tradition and served its Catholic chaplaincy. Located on the campus of Saint Mark’s College, St. Mark’s Parish is now served by the Jesuit Fathers, who labour together with the Office of Campus Life and Ministry to build up the sacramental and intellectual life of our community. We strive to support the development of students as whole persons, prepared to make their contributions to the world. Our public outreach efforts strengthen our role as the Catholic centre at the University of British Columbia, and our commitment to serving as a catalyst for thoughtful consideration of faith leading to understanding at both the university and in the broader community.
