Last year, this event sold out with over 300 guests and raised nearly $300,000 for our seminary’s programs of priestly formation and education. Convivium 2015 will take place on November 7, 2015.

The evening includes Mass, silent and oral auctions, a raffle, and an elegant dinner. For further information, please click here.

Organ Debut Concert – November 12

To celebrate the new pipe organ in the Chapel of St. Joseph, we will be hosting a debut concert at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 12th. The concert will be free and open to the public.

Dr. Horst Buchholz, Director of Music and organist for the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, will be the featured organist. In addition to solo literature for the organ, the program will also feature vocal solos, the choir, and congregational singing.

The new pipe organ was built from over 2,000 pieces that traveled across the country from A.E. Schlueter Pipe Organ Company in Georgia. Crews worked around the clock to assemble the organ which contains 39 ranks and 2,156 pipes along with four divisions: Great, Swell, Choir, and Pedal.
