We took a lot of pictures trying to show how, in CORE 2018, Serra Clubs support, affirm and encourage vocations to the priesthood. Even those who were not able to attend surely felt the admiration and warmth we have for them.
But, in truth, no series of photographs can really show what CORE 2018 meant to the bishops, priests, permanent deacons and seminarians of our two dioceses.
Yes, it is most important that we pray for them, but it is also important to openly demonstrate our support for them, particularly at this time when our Church is being viciously attacked because of the crimes committed by a very small number of our clergy.
And so, CORE 2018 again provided our clergy with an opportunity to relax, time for fellowship, cards, golf, a fine meal and golfing awards during which we, Serrans and other laity, came out in force to publicly show our love and support for them.
In this slideshow we focus on our clergy playing cards, golf, socializing before dinner, enjoying their dinner and the golf awards.
