Event Details

Celebrating St. Mark’s 60th anniversary at UBC, this year’s Breakfast, featuring Graydon Nicholas as our keynote speaker, will take place at Vancouver College on Saturday September 23, 2017 from 9:30-11:30 am. Judge, lecturer and former Lieutenant Governor of the Province of New Brunswick, Graydon was born on the Tobique Reserve in New Brunswick and is a member of the Maliseet First Nation. The first aboriginal person to receive a law degree in Atlantic Canada, the first to be made a judge and the first to be named Lieutenant Governor, he is a graduate of St. Francis Xavier University and is the Chair of the Native Studies at program at St. Thomas University. Graydon is deeply committed to advancing the importance of Aboriginal Christian life at the University, and this is a message that resonates so clearly with the Catholic College at UBC.

 

The Honourable Graydon Nicholas

 

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.

 

Funds raised will provide support for student scholarship and financial assistance programs.

 

Thank you to our sponsors in supporting the cost of the Breakfast. This is a free (and non-ticketed) event. However, an meaningful gift of support will be requested at the Breakfast. An official tax receipt will be issued for all donations received.

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.
