As our name suggests, St John Vianney, the Patron Saint of Diocesan Priests, is the Patron of our Institution. The Feast Day of St John Vianney falls on the 4th of August each year. However, as is our tradition, we celebrate the Feast on its Eve with the Solemn Evening Prayer of the Church. This year, we anticipated the celebration on Friday, 2 August. Staff, Students, and invited guests participated in the evening prayer presided over the by Academic Dean, Fr Ricardo Smuts. Archbishop William Slattery of the Archdiocese of Pretoria also graced us with his presence.
After Evening Prayer a Festive Meal was enjoyed by all.
