Annual costs exceed $30,000 per seminarian for education, room and board. The Eastern Chaldean Catholic Church currently has 10 seminarians in preparation and 100% of the proceeds from this event will benefit The Chaldean Seminarian Fund. Help us keep the faith and support the future of our community! This event is being organized by the Alexander and Gabrielle Mansour Memorial Fund. Tragedy struck the family of John and Ann Mansour in July of 2013 losing their children Alexander (11} and Gabrielle (6) to a devastating boating accident. In the days, weeks and months of mourning,family, friends and the community came together to pray for the Mansours. Eleven-year old Adriana survived the accident suffering severe brain trauma and was in critical condition for months. She is currently progressing and able to attend school. The family took comfort from many, but it was the church, several priests and seminarians that never missed a day to pray with and console the Mansours. The family set up the foundation in memory of their children. Registration for the event can only be done online at www.alexandgabby.com
