History

This is the 12th Annual Seminary Ball of the “modern era.”  However, the history of the “Seminary Ball” actually goes back to October of 1951, with the foundation of a Diocesan Council of the National Council of Catholic Women.  In 1954, Bishop William Mulloy asked this Diocesan Council of Catholic Women to undertake a fundraising effort for the newly established Seminary of St. Pius X in Erlanger.  On January 22, 1955 at Summit Hills Country Club in, what was then, South Fort Mitchell, the first Seminary Guild Ball was held. The theme for the “Ball” was “Symphony in Blue,” and was attended by over 200 people.  The last Seminary Guild Ball, which was in its 28th year, was held at Summit Hills Country Club on January 30, 1982.

 

In 2010, His Excellency, The Most Reverend Roger J. Foys, Tenth Bishop of the Diocese of Covington, reinstituted the Seminary Ball in support of our seminarians and their education and formation.  In 2021, we had a record capacity crowd of 602 attendees to welcome The Most Reverend John C. Iffert, newly installed Bishop of the Diocese of Covington.
