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.

Please consider supporting our future priests in one or more of the following ways:
ATTEND THE AUCTION
Mark your calendars for Convivium on November 7th and consider reserving a seat or table for ten. Invitations will be mailed in early September. We expect the event to sell out and encourage prompt replies. To request an invitation, please contact 314-792-7436 or email@example.com.
DONATE AN AUCTION ITEM
Donate an item or experience, preferably with a value of $50, $100, $500 or more, for our auction. Please remember that all tangible items must be new or antiques in “like new” condition. Our Wish List provides ideas for possible auction donations.
If you are in the position to provide an item, please deliver a completed donor form and the donation to the seminary by October 2nd.
BECOME A SPONSOR
Corporate and individual sponsorships play a critical role in the success of Convivium. By underwriting event costs, a larger percentage of proceeds can directly benefit our seminarians. Sponsors receive exposure in the auction’s promotional materials and on the night of the auction. Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze sponsorship opportunities are available.
MAKE A MONETARY CONTRIBUTION
Monetary contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated and will help offset the costs of the event. These gifts will allow more of the event’s proceeds to directly benefit the seminary. Supporters contributing $1,000 or more will be recognized as Underwriters.
PLACE A CATALOG ADVERTISEMENT
This year, we are introducing advertising opportunities as an additional way for individuals, businesses and organizations to show their support of today’s seminarians and tomorrow’s priest. Full, half, quarter and eighth page advertisements are available.
Your prayers for our seminarians and for the success of our auction are greatly appreciated.
