Archbishop Joseph Harris will join 75 priests and deacons in showcasing their culinary talents at the fund-raising event, Priests Can Cook on September 29.
Priests Can Cook is being organised by the staff of Archbishop’s House and the Catholic Education Board of Management (CEBM), with support from the St Mary’s College Past Students’ Union. CEBM manages 118 primary schools throughout TT, catering for both Catholic and non-Catholic children.
Many of the schools are in dire need of funding for infrastructural issues as well as critical social programmes for students, parents and guardians.
It is hoped that enough funds will be raised to assist four of the neediest schools –Our Lady of Laventille, Diego Martin Boys’, Petit Valley Boys’ and La Romaine RC, said a media release.
A variety of dishes and desserts will be available with one of the features being a special dish cooked on spot by Fr Kenneth Assing of Blanchisseuse parish.
Live entertainment will be provided by ace saxophonist Pedro Lezama, the Camejo Family, Sacred Heart Girls’ RC choir, Take Five band with lead singer Derek Patience. Another highlight will be a performance by 11-times Panorama champions, Desperadoes Steel Orchestra.
Tickets for Priests Can Cook cost $250 and are available at all parish offices and at Archbishop’s House.
The event will run from 6.30pm to 10.30pm at St John Ambulance Brigade Compound (opposite Hasely Crawford Stadium), Wrightson Road Extension, Port-of-Spain.
