Activities and events for Knights and Parishioners of St Anthony's

 

General Meeting - Thursday, 11th January

The next monthly General Meeting of the Knights of St Thomas More will be held on Thursday 11th January at 19.30 in the Parish Center at St Anthony's. From 20.30 we will have a presentation from Mrs Merete Bilde who will be discussing her work combining 'Religion and Diplomacy'.  Since this is a topic of wide interest, any parishioners who are interested to come along for the presentation and to jin us for refreshments afterwards. 

Merete Bilde is a policy advisor at the European External Action Service of the European Union (EU) in Brussels. She has been involved in a number of initiatives at the cross-section of religion and politics within the EU, including issues related to freedom of expression, freedom of religion or belief, as well as the defamation debate. In the aftermath of the Arab Spring, her work has focused heavily on the new political actors and the new regional dynamics at play, including between the new Middle East and the United States and Europe.

 

Join us for our Southern Cross Wine Cruise! 

Ticket price - only €25!

On Saturday 27th January, the Knights of St Thomas More will be hosting their annual wine tasting event at St Anthony's Parish Hall, starting at 19.00 and finishing some time after that!

When you visit the Southern Hemisphere, you can't help but notice that the night sky is quite different.  One of the most easily recognised features is the Southern Cross.  Through our virtual cruise we will enjoy a range of fine wines that have been created under the view of the constellation - wines from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and a number of South American countries.  We will be guided on our oneological tour by Miguel Saelens of "Mig's World Wines" in the Chaussee de Charleroi 43, Sint Gilles, Brussels - a Belgian with an Australian accent!! 

During the course of the evening, we will also be having a "Wine Quiz" that will test your knowledge and sobriety - the winners will be taking away wine prizes.  And there is a Tombola run on the evening for even more wine prizes!

In addition to the wines, you will be able to enjoy a delicious steak and salad dinner prepared for you by our Knights. So you will be able to enjoy all your wines and a steak dinner for the ridiculously low price of only €25!

All the profits will be going to charity - in past years we have been able to support the work of the Irish Franciscans in Zimbabwe with this event.
