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.
