The 30th Annual Ordinandi Dinner once again continued the tradition of honouring our Ordinandi in the Archdiocese of Toronto.

On Tuesday, March 3, 2020, under the prayerful watch of St. Junipero Serra and inspired by the prayer, “Jesus, I trust in you” selected by the Ordinandi Class of 2020 as their theme, 1,839 supporters from the Archdiocese of Toronto gathered at the Pearson Center in Brampton to celebrate the vocation journey of our thirteen extraordinary men from St. Augustine’s Seminary and Redemptoris Mater Seminary.

The 2020 Ordinandi Dinner continued the wonderful tradition of support for vocations to priestly and religious life founded in 1991. The Archdiocese of Toronto Pastoral Plan, under the leadership of Cardinal Thomas Collins urges us all to adopt, support and encourage a “culture of vocations”. The Ordinandi Dinner has become an important component of instilling and encouraging that culture of vocations in our Archdiocese. In addition, this event permits the faithful to show in a demonstrative way their support and affection for the men embarking on a life of service to God’s church and His people. The Class of 2020 included thirteen men from different backgrounds all dedicating themselves to a life of service in Christ. Their vocation stories are the highlight of the evening both informing and inspiring the assembled faithful.
