The Priestness Stakes
The Priestness stakes is a thoroughbred Priest race to be held on April 29th at the 10th Annual St. Regis Academy Luau. The competition pits current and former St. Regis pastors in a duel to raise money for the Academy. Money raised from supporters prior to the race will allow each priest to get a jump start on the competition. The priest who crosses the finish line first will receive 25% of the total Priestness stakes money raised to split between their parish and one of their lucky supporters. Supporters get their names entered into the drawing with every $20 they contribute to a particular priest. Let the games begin!
- Supporters can contribute to the competition online or at St. Regis Church after masses beginning March 18 up until the day before the event, April 28.
- For every $20 contributed in the name of one of the priests, the supporter will have their name entered into the drawing to split the pot if that priest wins the race.
