Archdiocesan events

May 12, 2023

The Archdiocesan Marriage, Family & Relationships team would like to invite staff and parents in the school community to two events on 23 May with guest speaker Christopher Padgett;

  • A Men’s Breakfast, in collaboration with Menalive
  • A cocktail dinner, designed to be a fun & encouraging night out for anyone interested in encouraging the vocation of marriage & family in our Archdiocese: single, married, ordained, consecrated, young or old. All are welcome.

Chris Padgett is a Catholic husband, father & grandfather, as well as an author, musician and entertainer. He has a Licentiate in Theology and works in marriage education for the Diocese of Syracuse, New York.

You will shortly receive an envelope with posters and flyers advertising these two events. We would greatly appreciate it if you could display the posters where parents and staff are likely to see them and advertise the Chris Padgett events in communications with staff and parents and on your social media pages. Please see details below
