DOMINGUEZ SEMINARY CENTENARY
The mission of the Claretian Alumni Association is to help the retirement community at Dominguez – the men who served as our teachers, our mentors, and our friends. Recent gifts from the alumni and supportive friends have done much to help the community. We brought air-conditioning to the dining and community rooms, created a gazebo for sitting outside, repurposed to the old pool area in a communal garden, and improved security on the property.
But there is much more that needs to be done as we remake a 100-year-seminary building, designed for boys and young men when it was built in the 1920s, into a comfortable, modern space for the 80- and 90-year-olds who now call it home. We hope to accomplish a series of capital improvements in time for the seminary centenary in 2024. This year we are asking alumni to consider a five-year pledge leading up to the centenary.
Through the efforts of the Claretian Alumni Association, various capital improvements have been made or are being planned to better accommodate the needs of retired missionary priests and brothers.
The Claretian Alumni Association seeks to raise $100,000 annually from over the next five years leading up to the Centenary. We know this is ambitious, considering the challenges presented by the virus, recession, etc. But a $500,000 goal can be met, with the generosity of alumni and the special friends who are matching those gifts. Please make your pledge today!
