The Annual Seminary Dinner draws over one thousand Catholics together each year for one reason – to invite the faithful into our mission of forming priests in the image of Jesus Christ. It is a joyful evening that gives the Church (you!) the opportunity to meet, and support, this remarkable group of men who are being called by God to the priesthood.
We are working diligently to plan this special evening, because we feel called to lift up the Church with hope for the future. We want people to see the compelling happiness that radiates from our seminarians as they answer the Lord’s call. Their enthusiasm is inspiring, and they want to share it. Will you help them?
Invitations will be mailed on August 19, but this is your chance to take a leadership role in underwriting the dinner now. Your generosity will allow us to create a powerful event where every dollar raised can go directly to priestly formation.
