Seminary Benefit Gathering – Eugene

Download the ProgramMake a Gift

March 7, 2021  |  4:00 – 5:30 pm (PT)  |  Virtual

This year we cannot gather in the same way as usual for the Seminary Benefit Dinner in Eugene. Yet, more than ever we need to offer our support for the men preparing for the priesthood at Mount Angel Seminary. The strength of their commitment has not decreased; neither has the need to offer them our heartfelt support, prayers, and financial assistance. 

Please join us for an evening of faith and hope as we:

  • Meet the men preparing for the priesthood at Mount Angel Seminary.
  • Participate in our live-stream program as the seminarians welcome you into the heart of their priestly formation.
  • Share in their journey toward priesthood through song, prayer, and stories of their lives on the Hilltop.
  • Be inspired as Abbot Jeremy shares his vision for the future of the seminary.
