Christmas Luncheon


On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, Fr. James Wehner, Rector/President of NDS, and Archbishop Gregory Aymond, Chancellor of NDS, welcomed guests to our annual Christmas Luncheon for Priests. The day began with Mass at the Jesuit Church of the Immaculate Conception, which was followed by a reception and luncheon at The Roosevelt Hotel in The Roosevelt Ballroom. Over 800 benefactors and friends of NDS enjoyed the festive fundraiser to kick off the holiday season and support NDS. Mrs. Darlene Robért, the 2018 Honorary Chairperson, was recognized for her tremendous gift of service and her commitment to the mission of NDS. We would like to thank our 2018 event co-chairs, Kay Smith, Allison Talley, and Susan Zeringue, for their dedication and leadership as well as Sueann North and Ana Tumminello, who served as our Auction Chairpersons. The seminary community is grateful to the entire Christmas Luncheon Committee for generously donating their time in preparation for this event. We would also like to thank our event and table sponsors, especially Mrs. Gayle Benson who generously sponsored our 2018 Christmas Luncheon.
