Mount Angel Seminary Benefit Dinner
Sunday, November 3, 2013 --- 4 to 7:30 pm
Meet your future priests at the Seminary Benefit Dinner.
Jeanne and Tim Freeman were joined by George and Kathryn Edens, Fr. John Kerns '85, Fr. Ralph Recker, OSB '09, Manuel Becerra (currently studying at St. Patrick's Seminary) and Mount Angel seminarian Francisco Bringuela at the 2012 Portland Seminary Benefit Dinner.
One of the greatest needs of the Catholic Church today is spiritual leadership. Mount Angel Seminary has an excellent priestly formation program that is training tomorrow’s priests.
We invite you to join with us in the celebration of future priests by sponsoring a table at the either the Portland or the Eugene Seminary Benefit Dinner. Your support helps maintain the excellent priestly formation program provided by Mount Angel Seminary. The largest seminary in the west, Mount Angel serves a Catholic population of over eleven million.
The total cost to educate a seminarian is $36,150. Tuition, room and board fees cover 80% of this cost. The Abbey and Seminary must raise the additional amount for each seminarian – over $1.3 million in private support each year for seminarian education.
