Saint Meinrad Seminary & School of Theology

Formation and Education for the Life of the Church

Month In Pictures: September 2014

by Krista Hall

There is a lot of rhythm and pattern found at Saint Meinrad. The monastic community prays at the same time every day. Seminarians follow weekly class schedules. Oblate events are held around the same time throughout the year.

These are things that can be counted on and they create structure and unity in the daily life on the Hill. Rhythm and pattern also create unity and structure in photographs. Repeating shapes add movement and interest to images.

From stained glass windows to trees planted in a row, Novice Charles Peñalosa, OSB, spent some time photographing some of these patterns found in the Archabbey Church and around the buildings and grounds of Saint Meinrad.
