41st Annual Claretian Alumni Reunion and BBQ
Saturday, August 27, 2022

After a Covid closure over the last two years, Dominguez Seminary will open its gates to welcome the Claretian Alumni Family for a very special Reunion on August 27. Following Mass in the Seminary Chapel, our traditional BBQ lunch will be served in the Upper Garden. And the afternoon will be spent catching up with friends and classmates. The Claretian residents of Dominguez Seminary will join us. Spouses, kids, grandkids and guests are all welcome. Docents from the Rancho Museum will be providing tours throughout the afternoon.

Claretville Reunion and Family Picnic
Sunday, June 12, 2022

Join us and your classmates on a special visit to a place untouched by time and cherished by all who once lived there. Now Gillette Ranch, part of a state and national park system, Claretville remains much the same as when we were there in the 50s and 60s.

Bring your own lunch and drinks, with arrival after 10 a.m. If you would to share with friends, please do so. The park has provided us a covered area with tables, near the pool. We’ve set aside 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for swapping stories or wandering the grounds.
From 1 to 3p.m., the resident ranger will open the seminary building for private tours – and more story-telling. Check out your old room, the classrooms, and the chapel. The adventurous can take a hike up to Inspiration Point. And make time for the  Visitor Center, built on the old stables. It’s  magnificent.

Bring your spouse, kids, grand kids or anyone you have been telling stories about your glory days living in Calabasas. Space is limited so  reserve your place with an email to Tell us who you are bringing as the park needs an exact count. We will send you a parking permit by return email.

If you need a bite of nostalgia, watch the slideshow below for some pictures of this three-some’s (Rudy Maldonado ’56, Robert Loera’63, &John Crowe’64) recent visit.
