NOVEMBER 1, 2014
Mass • Silent Auction • Dinner • Live Auction
Kenrick-Glennon Seminary’s annual Convivium Dinner Auction will be held on November 1, 2014 at The Cedars in downtown St. Louis. This enjoyable evening begins with a Mass celebrated by Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, the Archbishop of St. Louis. Mass will be followed by an elegant dinner and silent and oral auctions.
This annual event supports the Student Life Association and the Cardinal Glennon College Student Activity Fund, helps underwrite the seminary’s operational budget, and offsets expenses for special needs such as the Holy Land Retreat and Pilgrimage Fund. The Seminary appreciates and depends on the many friends and benefactors who continue to support Convivium.
