2018 Tiawenk Fundraising Dinner and Auction

Saturday, September 15th 2018 at Quality Inn, Midland

Martyrs’ Shrine is holding a special fundraising dinner and auction on 15 September, 2018, with a hope-filled goal to raise $50,000.00, in support of the renovation of the old Caretaker’s Cottage.  With the establishment of a permanent Jesuit Community on the grounds, the opening of our new Magis Guest House for the recreation of priests and religious from around the world, and our new winter programming, having a Caretaker who lives on-site has once again become essential.  For over seventy-five years, the cottage housed loyal staff at the service of our mission but, left un-used of late, there is much to be done to make it a healthy, functional, and comfortable building.  As the Jesuit Community continues to expand its pastoral, educational, and intellectual support in Simcoe County, we need a staff member, on-site, and available, to assist us.
