Dear members of the Abbey Family,
What a wonderful Xanadu Auction we had last Saturday!
Each year I am amazed at the camaraderie and generosity of so many of our families and friends; but this year, especially, I found the 'spirit' of the evening very wonderful. I want to thank in a special way all those who contributed to the Fund-A-Need; what a tremendous gift you have given to our students, alumni, faculty and monks!
Xanadu is much more than a fundraiser. It is an occasion which brings all elements of the Abbey Family together and gives us the opportunity to celebrate this wonderful community, all to the purpose of sustaining the Mission of the Saint Louis Priory School.
May God bless all of you who were, in whatever way, a part of this year's Xanadu.
Yours sincerely in the Lord,
Father Gregory Mohrman, O.S.B.
From the Xanadu Chair and the Development team...
A heartfelt thanks to all who donated, volunteered, raised paddles and attended Xanadu 2015. “An Evening in Paris” was a magnificent success thanks to the wonderful Section Chairs, scores of volunteers and our phenomenal Priory family. It was amazing to see it all come together, and I hope everyone had a great time. From the Preview Party, to the wildly successful Fund-a-Need, to the exhilarating end of the Live Auction, there was non-stop action all for a worthy cause. What could be more important than the education of our boys? I can't wait to share the grand total at the Mothers’ Club Spring Luncheon in April!
