The 12th Annual Alumni Phonathon: 5-16 November

VIVITE VIANNEY! THE SAINT JOHN VIANNY HALL RENOVATION
Grounded in tradition. Renovating for the future. Forming the new Sons of Saint Ben's.


THE GOOD NEWS
There is exciting news to report to you about your Alma Mater. Your seminary currently has 105 men studying for the priesthood, and the recently completed Master Plan indicates that enrollment will continue to grow.

THE CHALLENGE
With this good news also comes some challenges. The Master Plan addresses the necessity for future renovations to the campus, however, a critical need exists today for additional student housing. It requires immediate action.


Answer the call. . . with the ear of your heart: PLEDGE HERE!

THE APPEAL
You will be receiving a call between November 5 and 16 from a student or alumnus with a very serious appeal to financially support the renovation to Vianney Hall, which will add 40 new rooms to house seminarians.

THE REWARD
This will be the first significant construction project for the seminary since the late 1950s. Saint Ben's has an enrollment that ranks among the largest Roman Catholic seminaries in the country. Our continued growth in enrollment will insure that there will be more priests in the dioceses we serve.

MAKE YOUR PLEDGE
Contribute to the phonathon via our web site's donations page. As always, your contribution is tax-deductible.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
If you would like more information, or are considering a significant financial gift to the seminary college, you may contact Alumni Director Fr. Matthew Clark at 985 867-2245 or mrclark@sjasc.edu.

Without your help, the seminary cannot continue its mission. We appreciate both your prayers and financial support.
