SEMINARIAN ROOM REFURBISHMENT FUND

For a donation of $2,500, a donor or group of donors will be recognized by a plaque affixed adjacent to the room with any associated dedication that the donor(s) would like to make.

 AUDITORIUM UPDATE

ORIGINALLY OPENED IN 1958, the Seminary Auditorium (approximately 1,850 square feet) is a place for meetings, lectures and events by both internal and external users. The absence of year-round climate control, however, has limited the time of year in which it can be used comfortably and efficiently. With the inauguration of a new, national Summer Spiritual Program commencing this May 2011, the time was right to improve its use for the Seminary community as well as its attractiveness for rental purposes. Like any renovation, it was with excitement (and some trepidation) that we began Phase One renovations in March 2011. Phase Two will begin in 2012 funding permitting.

How to Make a Gift: Donor funding to assist with Phases One and Two will be gratefully received. Please contact the Seminary Foundation Executive Director, David Howie at 519-432-1824 x240; email dhowie@uwo.ca 

BISHOP WILLIAM T. MCGRATTAN FUND 

This fund was established in 2009 to honour then-Seminary Rector Father Bill McGrattan on the occasion of his elevation to become Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Toronto. The Fund’s mandate is to support the office of a full-time Vocations Director, with the first appointment made in July 2010. The Foundation has committed to raising $450,000 over five years to offset the costs. Your gift will help contribute to much needed new vocations for our Diocese.

How to Make a Gift: Contact Foundation Executive Director Dr. David Howie at 519-432-1824 ext. 240 or dhowie@uwo.ca, or use our CanadaHelps secure online donation site and select from the Fund/Designation drop-down menu. Thank you!
