Saint Meinrad Seminary & School of Theology

Formation and Education for the Life of the Church

Month In Pictures: August 2014

August seemed like one of the fastest months and one of the hottest months of the year. The month began with two novices entering the monastic community and Br. André DeDecker, OSB, making his first vows.

At the end of the month, the seminarians returned, bringing with them the hot temperatures. Saint Meinrad saw some foggy mornings and comfortable summer nights that resulted in some of the prettiest grounds photos taken to date!

With the new school year, there is a lot of energy on the Hill. The semester ahead is sure to be filled with faith, fun, friendships and a lot of learning.
