Team OLQM at Seminary Gala

Our parish priests and lay ministry members attended the third annual gala for St. Joseph’s Seminary and College. The event was held on March 21, 2024, at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle. The gala evening, which raised $750,000 for the seminary, was further elevated by the presence of Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, and Bishop Robert Brennan who leads our Brooklyn/Queens Diocese. Many other bishops, clergy, donors, faculty members, and naturally, the seminarians were in attendance. This year’s honorees were Manny and Joanne Chirico, recognized for their unwavering support and generosity to the seminary. Please keep all the seminarians and those preparing for the permanent diaconate in your prayers so that they may persevere in their studies and, God willing, one day serve local parishes such as ours.
