Vianney Hall Renovation Project
UPDATE as of 9:43 p.m., Wednesday, 9/12/12
submitted by: Greg Jeffrey
Development Consultant for the Vianney Hall Project

Vianney Renovation Fund Drive Underway

On September 10 and 11, volunteers gathered at Saint Ben's Seminary College to select names of individuals with whom they wish to visit. Over the next few months, 20+ volunteers will be visiting with individuals to encourage their support of the project. Additional volunteers are always welcome. For details, see “Volunteer Duties.doc” at the link below.

Work on Vianney Hall is scheduled to begin in mid-October. For many years, Vianney Hall provided storage space for the seminary and abbey. A storage facility was recently constructed, and items that have been stored in Vianney Hall will soon be moved to the new storage facility, so that work on Vianney may begin.

The fund drive for Vianney Hall is spearheaded by the monks of Saint Joseph Abbey, in particular Fr. Gregory Boquet, Rector and President of the seminary, and Abbot Justin Brown. It is the first step of a multi-phase plan to renew the campus. 

If you have any questions, contact Vanessa Crouere, Director of Development, at her office 985 867-2242.

Attention Volunteers: Schedule Change Due to Hurricane Isaac

The Vianney Hall Fund Drive has been postponed due to Hurricane Isaac.

If you had planned to help with this effort, be advised that we have re-scheduled the meetings for 6:30 pm on Monday, September 10, and 6:30 pm on Tuesday, September 11. Feel free to choose the one evening most convenient for you. 

We are making arrangements to meet in the Abbot Paul Conference Room in Borromeo Hall. If you have any questions, contact Vanessa Crouere, Director of Development, at her office: 985 867-2242.

Vivite, Vianney!  Live, Vianney!  In September, Saint Joseph Abbey and Seminary College will launch “Vivite, Vianney!  Live, Vianney!,” a funding initiative to cover the cost of the $3.4 million Vianney Hall renovation.

The effort is spearheaded by the monks of Saint Joseph Abbey, in particular Fr. Gregory Boquet, Rector and President of the seminary, and Abbot Justin Brown. In addition, dozens of volunteers have agreed to help with the fundraising effort by calling on others to ask their support. For details, click to download Volunteer Duties here:

from campaign counsel Greg Jeffrey

Some of you have offered to make calls/visits on behalf of the Vianney Hall Renovation Fund Drive, but because you were unable to make meetings on September 10-11, have not yet had an opportunity to choose your contacts.

Because the fire took out the computer server room, the Development Office does not have access to alumni and donor records at the moment. However, thanks to a very professional IT team, we have a current backup of data, and anticipate having alumni and donor records back “on line” in about a week. That will allow us to resume pairing volunteers with prospective donors.
 
As you can appreciate, Fr. Gregory, our rector, and Vanessa Crouere, director of development, have many demands placed on them at the moment.  If you have questions about the fire, or the Vianney Hall Renovation Fund Drive, I would be happy to take your call day, evening or weekend.
