Saint Meinrad Seminary & School of Theology

Formation and Education for the Life of the Church

Month In Pictures: July 2014

July was a busy month on the Hill. In the monastery, the Benedictine Scholars program came to an end and the monks celebrated the Feast of all Benedictine Saints and the Solemnity of Our Lady of Einsiedeln, the patroness of the Archabbey Church. They also celebrated the profession jubilees of Brother Benedict and Father Cletus (75 years), Father Rupert (70 years), Fathers Vincent and Augustine (60 years), Father Raymond (50 years), and Father Godfrey (25 years).

The Seminary and School of Theology stayed busy with the youth, permanent deacon and lay degree programs. "One Bread, One Cup" wrapped up the second week in July and deacon candidates from the Archdiocese of Nassau were on the Hill for a week of homiletics study and practice. The month wrapped up with 209 alumni and 36 guests returning to the Hill for the 86th annual Alumni Reunion.

There was also action in the Oblate Office on July 11 when Fr. Julian Peters, OBS, gave a Day of Recollection, and the Institute for Priests and Presbyterates enjoyed the company of seven Stoking the Fire participants. All-in-all, it was a good month that brought many guests to the Hill.
