The Feast of St. Jerome

The Feast of St. Jerome is a community event that honours our Patron Saint.  This event hosts our donors and friends and is held annually in the fall. Following an opportunity to celebrate liturgy together, we enjoy a night of celebration, dining, connecting, reminiscing, and raising money for entrance scholarships to St. Jerome’s University. A highlight of the evening is the presentation of the Chancellor John R. Sweeney Award for Catholic Leadership, and the honouring of the recipient.
