Seminarian Dinner

The Annual Seminarian Dinner provides an evening for the faithful to meet our seminarians and receive an update from the Office of Vocations. This event is a fundraising dinner to support our seminarians. It includes time to socialize, evening prayer, dinner and a brief program. 

In August 2020, the in-person dinner was canceled due to COVID-19. An online opportunity to meet the seminarians and hear from the co-vocations directors was provided to the faithful.

Prayers and financial support are essential to the vocational discernment of our seminarians. Donations to the Seminarian Fund support the tuition, books and board and summer ministry expenses of the seminarians, as well as recruitment of future seminarians. The yearly cost to educate one seminarian is a little more than $50,000. Click here to make a gift. Thank you for your continued prayers and support of our seminarians.
