Dining with The Saints 2021

 

A JRS Evening

 

Date: Monday, 6 December 2021

Time: Dinner to be served at 7 pm

Venue: Churchill Room, The Tanglin Club Singapore

 

As we approach the year-end festivities, JRS Singapore, together with Sevenhill Cellars and Limwood Gourmet, invite you to spend an exquisite evening with us as we take pause and share a meal at The Tanglin Club. Savour a specially curated 4-course dinner paired with wines from the Sevenhill Cellars, the only remaining Jesuit-owned winery in Australia.

The Jesuit connection for the evening is significant. 2021 marks a significant milestone in the history of Sevenhill Cellars as they celebrate their 170th Anniversary. 

It all began when a group of Austrian Jesuits fled their country to escape the ravages of political and religious oppression. The group of 130 Catholics led by Franz Weikert, a Silesian farmer, travelled to Australia with a vision of establishing a community where they can enjoy religious freedoms. 

They were accompanied by two Jesuit priests, Father Aloysius Kranewitter and Father Maximillian Klinkostroem, who served as chaplains to this founding group of immigrants. The immigrants settled near the township of Clare and the Jesuits, impressed by the fertility of the local soil, purchased 100 acres of land in 1851, naming it Sevenhill after the Seven Hills of Rome. 

Sevenhill was the centre of the Mission. It became a college, included a small boarding school for boys and for some time a seminary to prepare priests, with its own handsome church. It also produced wine, initially to provide altar wine for churches throughout the State. The priests provided the sacramental ministry and the learning necessary for teaching and giving retreats throughout the southern states; the Jesuit Brothers provided and developed the skills in building and in winemaking. And today, Sevenhill Cellars is one of the oldest and most respected vineyards in Australia.

Sharing the same spirit of fellowship and outreach to displaced communities as the Jesuits in Sevenhill, JRS Singapore is focused on our mission to accompany, serve and advocate on behalf of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons, that they may heal, learn and determine their own future. Nett proceeds from this gala event will fund programs for Asylum Seekers and Refugees in South-East Asia and for our local migrant community as well.
