DEO GRATIAS SPONSORSHIPS + TICKETS

Greetings from Saint Joseph Abbey and Seminary College. It is with immense gratitude that we look forward to this year's Deo Gratias ("Thanks be to God") Seminary Fundraiser. We are thankful for the faithful commitment of so many in our community who continue to pledge their prayers and support to the formation of our seminarians. Deo Gratias not only serves as a fundraiser for the Seminary College, but as an opportunity to celebrate the ongoing growth and achievements of our institution. At this time we can boast of record numbers of seminarians in formation here at the Abbey. We are also proud to say that we have one of the finest seminary faculties in the country. This year, our Benedictine Community will open its doors to 150 seminarians from 22 dioceses across the south. Together we continue our pursuit of Ora et Labora ("prayer and work") upon the four pillars of our formation: Spiritual, Human, Intellectual, and Pastoral. As a member of our extended community of supporters and prayer partners, you are an essential part of the ministry of the Benedictine Community of Saint Joseph Abbey and Seminary College.

Deo Gratias will take place on Saturday, October 29, 2016 on the beautiful grounds of the Abbey from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM. Food will be prepared by award winning Chef John Folse. At Deo Gratias, patrons have an opportunity to meet many of the monks, seminarians, faculty, and staff of Saint Joseph Abbey and Seminary College who devote themselves to the mission of Ora et Labora.
