42nd Annual Claretian Alumni Reunion
Saturday, August 26, 2023
The 42nd Annual Claretian Alumni Reunion and BBQ will be held at Dominguez Seminary on Saturday, Aug. 26. Registration will begin at 10 a.m., Mass in the Chapel at 11, and the BBQ lunch served immediately after in the Upper Garden (old pool area).
Br. Salvatore Azzarello CMF, a member of the Dominguez Seminary faculty in the 60s, will be honored with the Claretian Alumni Tribute Award. He is the first brother to be honored among the men previously recognized for having a major impact on our formation.
Please copy the registration material for the Reunion and BBQ below and mail, with your check, to Johnson and Associates in Torrance. Thanks to donations, we have not increased the cost of the lunch and program, still just $35 per person. All proceeds benefit retired Claretians. Please note that all checks should be made to “Claretian Missionaries.”

Raffle Benefits Emergency Improvements at dominguez Seminary
Dominguez is showing its age. This spring, the sewer line under the south side of the nearly 100 yea-old seminary building failed, sending retired residents to Mater Dolorosa Retreat House in Sierra Madre retreat house for a week. Time took its toll on the old clay pipe.
The Claretian Alumni Association has paid the $9,000 sewer pipe repair bill, and is now collecting additional funds for a $15,000 preemptory fix to the same sewer line running under the chapel and north side of the Dominguez building. Proceeds from this year’s Reunion Raffle and the Reunion BBQ will be used to fund this needed fix. If you still have your book of tickets, mailed three months ago, please send them in.
If you would like more tickets for the raffle, please contact Bill Johnson ’63 at [email protected].
