Convivium Dinner Auction

Many thanks to all who attended and supported the 25th Annual 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.

Messages from Past Attendees

We look forward to attending the Convivium to support all of the seminarians who are making a big commitment to support all of us. It is a real privilege to meet the newer seminarians and to meet up with the friends we have made over the years.Jeff and Laura Kavanagh
There are many important Galas that take place in the Archdiocese but the Convivium is special to me because it represents and supports the heart of our Archdiocese and our Faith: the seminary and our future priests of tomorrow.Russ Isaak
The Convivium Auction and Dinner is a fun and faith-filled evening, where St. Louis Catholics show their financial and prayerful support of the future priests who will serve them.  When all the seminarians and priests sing the Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen) to end the evening, you can’t help but feel God’s presence in the room.Mike and Mary Detwiler
We love attending Convivium because EVERYONE who attends is so happy to be there supporting our current and future priests! It is so easy to talk with the seminarians, because they come up and talk to you. (They must be practicing at being in a parish!) Convivium is a MUST ATTEND event every year!Diane Snively
