Support our Seminarians and Shop for a “Find”

On Saturday June 14, 2014, the Catholic Center and Office of Vocations is facilitating a Seminarian Rummage Sale.  No, our seminarians are not rummage and definitely not for sale,  however, the Catholic Center has accumulated several pieces of  “rummage” that they have offered to the seminarians to use as a fundraiser this summer.

Our garages on the lower level of Fairview House will be open for business at 9:00 a.m. and close at approximately 2:30 p.m. unless of course sales are still brisk, then our seminarians will remain open for business. Service groups are being asked to provide water and soft drinks, burgers and hot dogs for lunch.  All proceeds will go to the seminarians.

There should be a number of furniture items, some household furnishings, lamps, mattresses, books, bookcases, and tables of smaller miscellaneous items. There are some great items for kids going off to college, fishing camps and treehouses.  More importantly, however, is an opportunity to enjoy spending time with our seminarians in a very casual, low key setting, and have a good time, enjoy great food and financially support the seminarians.

If you have something with some useful life left in it and it will fetch a couple of bucks, call the Catholic Center (318-868-4441) and arrange for it to be dropped off.  We will not accept broken or non-useful items or clothing. Donations of items for the rummage sale will not be acknowledged for tax purposes. All items unsold will be donated to Catholic Charities, Christian Services, Providence House and other charitable organizations.

Please come support our seminarians. Happy shopping!
