Pictured here is Seminarian and artist Peter Nguyen who donated several of his paintings including this one titled Madona and Child. 

After guests enjoyed the magical recital in the Chapel they were lead to the main dining hall where an 8 course meal, music, and an auction awaited them.  It was a truly wonderful evening that raised substantial and much needed funds to assist in the formation of priests.
