Under normal circumstances, this upcoming Saturday night would be the night of our St. Patrick's Annual Gala, our premier event for the year. The Gala is a time for our supporters to come on campus to see our seminarians, faculty, and staff, to celebrate with like-minded Catholics devoted to the importance of priestly vocations, to recognize a worthy recipient of the Patrician Award, and to interact with various Church dignitaries. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has made such an event unwise.
Nevertheless, St. Patrick’s Seminary & University remains passionate in its mission to form priests who are faithful to the heart of Jesus Christ. Our seminarians are our future pastors who lead our parishes, counsel parishioners, proclaim the Gospel, and defend our Catholic faith. The Gala has been our major fundraising event that provides us with necessary resources to keep our mission going forward. If possible, please consider giving to our 2020 Gala Appeal, maybe whatever you might have spent at the Gala. You can donate online here.
Thank you for your ongoing support. While we cannot meet in person in 2020, please plan to join us in 2021 as we resume our Annual Gala. In the interim, please enjoy this slideshow from past Galas. God bless!
