Convivium Dinner Auction

The Convivium Dinner Auction was established in 1992 as the seminary’s sole annual fundraising event. The evening includes silent and oral auctions, a raffle, and an elegant dinner. Throughout its 23-year history, this event has experienced tremendous growth and provided crucial support for the seminary’s programs of priestly formation and education.

The proceeds support the Kenrick Student Life Association, the Cardinal Glennon College Student Activity Fund, the seminary’s annual operational budget, and the Holy Land Retreat and Pilgrimage Fund.
