Alumni Night at Saint John’s Seminary

On Friday evening I had the pleasure of Returning to St John’s Seminary for the annual alumni night. It was great to see many of my friends there who are still in studies. Also I met some fellow alumni who have been ordained over sixty years! You might remember that my classmates and I were there last week for the newly-ordained Mass.

The night began with a Holy Hour and sung vespers in the beautiful chapel. It was nice to pray where myself and so many other priests have prayed many times before. Below are two pictures of the chapel that I snapped while we were leaving.

Don’t forget to pray for an increase of vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life!
