About Speaker Series

The Speaker Series aims to bring our generous benefactors together from across Sydney and showcases the impact they make by their generous giving. In addition, high-profile speakers are invited to present on important Catholic matters, which is then followed by a presentation from one of our Catholic agencies. Each gathering is an opportunity to celebrate some of our achievements, and to discuss matters concerning Catholics, and how we can further work together to achieve the greater good in both society and the Church.
