Knights host vocations dinner

The Oakland Diocese Chapter of the Knights of Columbus will hold its annual Vocations Dinner on Nov. 7 at Carondelet High School, 1133 Winton Drive, Concord.
The evening begins with a no-host bar at 5:30 p.m., followed by a buffet dinner at 6:30 p.m.

Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, will attend the dinner, which supports vocations in the Diocese of Oakland. The funds go directly to the bishop to fund vocation programs, and to the needs of seminarians, such as language lessons or emergency travel home.

Proceeds from last year's dinner helped fund the inaugural Quo Vadis Days in the Diocese of Oakland, at which young Catholic men learned about vocations during three days at the Youth Retreat Center in Lafayette.

A table for 10 may be reserved for $450. To reserve a table, send an email, with Vocations Dinner in the subject line, to jim@smithwick.net. One check per table, made payable to "KofC Oakland Diocese Chapter" should be mailed to WCT Art Londos, P O Box 1792, Brentwood, CA 94513.
