2021 Christmas Luncheon for Priests

The seminary community recognizes the challenges our world, nation, and communities have been facing; however, we look to the future with great hope. We are pleased to announce that Notre Dame Seminary plans to host our annual Christmas Luncheon for Priests at The Roosevelt Hotel and Immaculate Conception Church on Monday, November 29, 2021.

The Christmas Luncheon continues to serve as one of our main annual fundraisers each year, and your support ensures that this event will continue to be a tremendous success.
