Brothers Living in Unity Campaign Receives $2 Million Gift Toward

Since announcing the campaign on Ash Wednesday in April, dozens of volunteers and monks have been working hard to personally visit with Conception’s many benefactors and friends about their commitment to the campaign. More than $9.7 million has been raised with the inclusion of the $2 million gift from St. Benedict’s Priory. As part of a three-year effort, Conception is working to secure $10 million toward the new residence hall to house all seminarians under one roof, which will further strengthen Conception’s formation program. The remaining $4.5 million will build up the Monastic Retirement Endowment to ensure that Conception continues to meet the needs of our retired monks who have devoted their lives in service to the Lord.

“I am happy to report that we are closer to achieving this goal each day at Conception through the sacrifice and partnership of our many benefactors,” Abbot Benedict said. “With the entire Conception family making a meaningful commitment of prayer and participation in the campaign, we are all sure to be more united in His abundant love, protection, and compassion.”

Seminary Residence Hall

We envision a new space that will strengthen the bond of fraternity among our seminarians, a true hallmark of priestly formation at Conception Seminary College. The purpose of this project is to house all seminarians under one roof to strengthen our formation program.

Monastic Retirement

As monks age and no longer can work in our seminary and other ministries, they reside in the Infirmary where their primary apostolate is prayer. The Monastic Retirement Endowment covers the expenses of their care.
