Ways to Support Saint Vincent de Paul

Special Events

Friends of the Seminary – is the seminary's signature a fund-raising event. It is an opportunity for alumni, individuals, foundations, corporate donors and supporters to attend vespers, a reception, silent auction, and dinner on the campus of St. Vincent de Paul.  Typically all the Bishops and the Archbishop of Florida attend.  Our event as gained recognition within the Catholic community as one of the most valued charitable events in Palm Beach County.  Over 500 individuals participate in the event state-wide. "Friends" has raised in excess of $1.125 million for the general support of SVDP operations since 2001.
