The annual alumni reunion for Conception Seminary College was held last Friday and Saturday, September 26-27. I'm not sure of the number attending but I think there were about 65-70 alumni here for some part of the of the two days. There was a lecture on Friday afternoon at 3:00 P.M. and then Mass was celebrated at 4:30 PM. At the conclusion of the Mass the "Distinguised Alumni Award" was given for this year. This year it was given to Sam Cline who attended school here 1974-78. He and his wife, Carol, were here to accept the award. The Mass was celebrated by Father Daniel Petsche, O.S.B., Prior of Conception Abbey.
After the Mass there was reception held in the lower plaza area outside of St. Raphael Welcome Center and then a banquet was held in the guest dining room in St. Joseph Hall. Later in the evening refreshments were available in St. Michael Hall.
Abbot Gregory arrived home from Rome and the meeting of Abbots on Friday evening.
