Alumni Reunion: November 5 – 8, 2009
May 19, 2009
Dear Friends in Christ,
Greetings in the Lord. Throughout the 2009-2010 school year, St. John Vianney College Seminary will be celebrating its Golden Jubilee, “A Year of Hope and Healing.” The key event will be an alumni reunion from November 5 – 8, 2009. It is my hope that you will be able to attend.
Msgr. Terrence Hogan and Chief Fred Mass have been named Honorary Chairs, representing both priest and lay alumni. Alumni may come for all the days, or those days that best work with their schedule. All events will take place at the seminary, and there will be no charge for the reunion itself. The only cost to you will come from transportation and housing.
Attached you will find a basic schedule of the weekend. Hotels will be suggested shortly, and may wish to use one of those or to make your own arrangements. I ask that you please contact the seminary at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can to tell us which event you are planning to attend.
I also ask that you help us to spread the word. If you know of a alumni who have not been contacted, please let them know they are most welcome. If they contact us, we will get the information out to them.
Pope Benedict XVI has also declared the coming year the Year of the Priest, during which he will name St. John Vianney as the patron of all priests. Please keep us in your prayers throughout the coming year, that it may truly be, in the Lord, a year of hope and healing.
May the Lord continue to bless you and your loved ones abundantly. With every personal good wish, I am
Sincerely yours in the Lord,
Rev. Msgr. Michael G. Carruthers
