Thank you Middle Tennessee for your support of our seminarians' education.


What is the Seminarian Education Dinner and Auction all about?

It’s about supporting our next generation of priests!  We currently have 21 seminarians in formation and looking forward to ordaining 2 to the priesthood this coming May.  For the last 14 years, the dinner has provided an opportunity for our Catholic community to gather around these men the Tuesday prior to ordination to show our support and raise the needed funds to keep the culture of vocations here in the Diocese of Nashville thriving.  It’s powerful to all gather together in one room and get to know each other in a fun, social setting.  If this is your 14th year attending, we are so grateful for your loyal support, if you are thinking about making this your first year to attend, we welcome you with open arms and look forward to having you there!  All are welcome!  We greatly appreciate your continued support or consideration of support and if you have any questions or thoughts, please see below for contact information.
