25th Annual Convivium Dinner Auction

As guests trickled into the Chase Park Plaza Khorassan Ballroom at about 6 p.m. on Nov. 4, Kenrick-Glennon seminarians anxiously waited to serve them, with the joy of the Gospel visible on the seminarians’ smiling faces. With the exception of serving dinner and busing tables, Kenrick-Glennon’s finest performed all of the tasks associated with 25th annual Convivium, the dinner/auction which is the seminary’s largest fundraiser… the seminarians thanked the guests — about 500 this year — for their ongoing support of the seminary, which Archbishop Robert J. Carlson called “the best in the country.” The enrollment of 132 this academic year is the largest in 30 years, with room to accommodate more.
