Bishop's Dinner for Community Needs

21st Annual Bishop’s Dinner for Community Needs!
Save the Date – Thursday, October 5, 2023 – Italian Canadian Club
Join us for Food, Friendship and Support of our Guelph and Wellington Community.

Each year the Wellington Catholic District School Board, in partnership with the Diocese of Hamilton, organizes an annual Bishop’s Dinner for Community Needs.  All proceeds directly fund community organizations and projects within Guelph and Wellington County. The annual dinner has been a tremendous success since its inaugural event, thanks to the generous support and enthusiastic participation from members of our community. Proceeds from the event will help efforts to assist families needing support with food security, mental health services, access to children’s recreational programs and support programs in our community.

This year the Wellington Catholic District School Board is hosting the 21st Annual Bishop’s Dinner for Community Needs on Thursday, October 5, 2023. We are looking forward to coming together to share in friendship, and to support those in need within our community.

Over the past 20 years, we have raised over $750,000 to help support children’s educational programming, access to food to those in need in our community, mental health programs, environmental stewardship initiatives, and much more. We have heard directly from organizations and those they serve, how this funding has made a significant difference in their lives and in our community.

This year we are committed to investments for four recipients in Guelph and Wellington. This year’s beneficiaries include:

  • Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington
  • Canadian Mental Health Association – Waterloo- Wellington
  • Centre-Wellington Food Bank
  • St. Vincent De Paul Society
