The Seminary here at Seton Hall – Immaculate Conception Seminary – will be sponsoring a blood drive in the University Center's Main Lounge on Thursday, October 10, 2013 from 10:30 a.m. till 6:30 p.m. Blood is always in short supply in New Jersey. Please help this important cause and donate if you can. The need is URGENT! We strongly recommend that you reserve a donation time in advance to minimize your wait and to help our blood collection center determine the number of donation stations to set up.

Mass at the University Chapel on Sunday nights, September 22 and 29 and

We will also have a sign-up table in the University Center during the three weeks prior to the blood drive in the area near the PNC Bank office and the Galleon Room.
