  • This event has passed.

Bread & Butter is a monthly dinner and storytelling event designed to make you think deeply about social issues. A new storyteller every month will share a personal story with an intimate audience in the dining room at the Centre for Stories. Come along and make new friends, hear a new story, and get to know your community. Compulsory: open ears and an open mind. This month’s storyteller is Father Andrew Albis.

Fr Andrew will talk about his life in the Philippines, migrating to Australia, and his complicated journey to priesthood.


On the menu is home-cooked Filipino food!
