The Archbishop's Dinner is held each year to raise monies for the Priests Support and Education Fund.
This fund was established by the Knights of the Southern Cross to assist in the funding and education of seminarians and the post-ordination education of priests.
The Knights of the Southern Cross hope that the Archbishop's dinner will also demonstrate in a tangible way their support for the Bishops of Victoria, the clergy and seminarians. As such, they encourage people to support the occasion.
This year's dinner will be held at Moonee Valley Racecourse on Friday, August 24, 2018, at 7pm.
The MC for the night is Shane Healy, Director of Media and Communications for the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne since 2015. Shane was previously General Manager of 3AW Radio in Melbourne for a decade. He was also a loved AFL football commentator.
Columnist, Andrew Bolt, is the guest speaker at this year's event. Andrew writes for newspapers across Australia, including the Herald Sun. Each weeknight he hosts The Bolt Report on Sky News. He is also a radio presenter on 2GB, 3AW and other radio stations across Australia.
