Convivium Dinner Auction

The Convivium Dinner Auction was established in 1992 as Kenrick-Glennon Seminary’s signature event in support of tomorrow’s priests. The evening includes silent and oral auctions, a raffle, and an elegant dinner. The proceeds support the seminary’s annual operational budget, the Kenrick Student Life Association, the Cardinal Glennon College Student Activity Fund, and the Holy Land Retreat and Pilgrimage Fund.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

A man of God comes to the seminary in response to our Lord’s invitation to “come and see.” At Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, future priests are learning how to listen to and respond generously to Christ’s call. They are preparing for the unique challenges and joys of a life of priestly ministry in the parish.

You are invited to join me at the upcoming Convivium Dinner Auction. Your response will be a statement – a statement of encouragement for the young men discerning their call to the priesthood at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary.

Thank you for supporting our seminarians as they follow the path of discipleship. We promise to be faithful stewards of our sacred responsibility of preparing outstanding parish priests. I look forward to seeing you at this enjoyable and faith-filled event on Saturday, November 7.Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, Archbishop of St. Louis
