What Is WineFest


Wine Fest is...

Divine Wine Fest is the signature fundraising event for the St. Lawrence Catholic Campus Center. Its purpose is to bring two great things together in one place, Jayhawks and Catholicism. It is an opportunity to share faith through the mission of St. Lawrence, to reconnect with the St. Lawrence family, and to financially support the mission of the Catholic Campus Center at the University of Kansas.

The first Divine Wine Fest took place in 1993 under the leadership of Monsignor Vince Krische who describes the development of the event as "an inspired moment that happened between friends over a glass of wine." Last year’s resurrection of the event after a ten year hiatus was so successful, that we decided to throw a big ‘ole Catholic Jayhawk party again!
