The evening of Saturday, February 7 the Fathers and Brothers of The Oratory welcomed 140 guests to the annual Rednal Benefit. Hors d'Oeuvers were served upstairs, while guests bought raffle tickets for the eight nationality baskets on display (each of the baskets - German, French, Italian, Chinese, Indian, South American, Irish and the American Travel Basket - contained a variety of items associated with a particular country, and a traditional festive beverage.) Dinner, served in the downstairs conference room and magnificently transformed garage, followed. Two showings of the 2015 Rednal Benefit Video served as the entertainment for the evening. The video included a slideshow of the Rednal retreat house through the years, a greeting from Fr. Drew that also demonstrated the need for a new road at Rednal, trailers of past Rednal videos and a magnificent aerial presentation of the Rednal property as it stands today. Dessert, raffles and a celebration of Fr. Drew's Birthday wrapped up the wonderful evening.
We are so grateful to all who come and supported our work at Rednal, and to all who helped to make it such a beautiful and successful evening. See you all next year!
