What is Last Collar Standing?

Last Collar Standing is an opportunity to raise both awareness of and funds for our Diocesan Lumen Christi Missionary program.  Through the support of this event we are able to:
    1. Offer Lumen Christi Missionaries to parishes around the diocese every summer at a greatly reduced cost to the parishes!
    2. Create a year round missionary program allowing individuals to serve a community in our diocese by aligning their passions and discernment to the needs in the community.
    3. And put on Discipleship Camps and confirmation retreats throughout the summer for junior high and high schoolers across the diocese.

The event consists of 12 priests gathering by Zoom during a livestreamed competition to answer trivia questions, complete in physical challenges and test their willpower to see who will be the Last Collar Standing.
This fun and hilarious competition is a great chance to see our priests in a new light and witness their fraternal brotherhood. This is our 5th annual year of putting on this event and we have had such an enormous positive response from people that we would decided to continue to offer it.
Consider hosing a watch party, either in your home or through your parish. You won’t want to miss this family friendly event!
