Watch for your invitation to Annual Gala!

August 03, 2018


Our Board of Directors and seminarians invite you to join us at our Annual Gala!  Set for Saturday, September 22 on the Plaza of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, our event honors distinguished alumni and dedicated Catholic leaders.

This year, we will honor five extraordinary people.  We’ll present our Distinguished Alumni honors to Msgr. Richard Krekelberg, retired pastor St. Rita’s Church; Deacon Robert Seidler, retired from his position as assistant to the Bishop in the San Fernando Region; Msgr. Francis Weber, archivist emeritus for the Archdiocese.; and in caring memory of Msgr. Robert Gallagher, past pastor of St. Charles Borromeo Church.  Sister Mary Elizabeth Galt, B.V.M., past superintendent of elementary schools and chancellor at the Archdiocese, will receive our Evangelii Gaudium Award.

Please feel free to contact us at or call us at 805-482-2755, ext. 1105 or 213-354-2608 if you would like to receive an invitation or if you would like to talk with us about becoming an event sponsor.

We hope that you will, as a past honoree said, “allow St. John’s Seminary to become something that belongs to all of us with great praise and gratitude to the Lord.”
