Special Guests

Vince Sorrenti is one of Australia’s most loved and leading comic entertainers. In 2012 he won the coveted Mo Award for Australia’s Best Stand-Up Comic for the fifth time. Vince has a long performance history, cutting his teeth in Architecture Revues in the early 1980s and in the burgeoning stand-up comedy scene that he helped create. Graduating as an architect in 1985, he threw full weight behind his real talent and has performed to crowds of thousands on stages all over the world.

He is a near permanent fixture at every major sporting event in Australia and has entertained everyone from prime ministers to PNG highlanders, Wall Street bankers to trade unionists, Hollywood celebrities to our own bishops! Over the past 25 years he has hosted TV programs in Australia and the United States, appeared in movies, released comedy albums, performed in festivals, and been a guest on countless talk and variety programs. Vince has also written hundreds of feature articles for publications including The Bulletin, Sydney Morning Herald, The Weekend Australian, Vacation, The Daily Telegraph and many others.

Catholic Business Connections (CBC) is an opportunity for business women and men in our diocese (active and retired) who share common values, to network and engage with each other and leaders representing the diocese. CBC gathers three or four times a year for lunch and to listen to guest speakers chosen to inspire with their unique story and share how they relate their work and spiritual life experience to the context of living in a modern world.
