Saint Meinrad Seminary & School of Theology

Formation and Education for the Life of the Church

Month in Pictures: August 2015

As with every month, there has been a lot of action at Saint Meinrad in August. The Archabbey welcomed 185 visitors at the beginning of the month for the 87th annual Alumni Reunion. Alumni and friends had the opportunity to relax, recharge and reconnect with the Saint Meinrad community.

In the monastery, Novice Tony Wolniakowski was invested on August 5, and the following evening, Br. Lorenzo Peñalosa, OSB, and Br. Stephen Avery, OSB, made their temporary vows.

The Institute for Priests and Presbyterates hosted the World Priests Program and permanent deacon candidates from several dioceses were on the Hill for a weeklong homiletics workshop.

Seminarians moved back into the seminary at the end of the month and the school year kicked off with an intensive spiritual formation week.

August may have been a busy month, but the Saint Meinrad grounds were just as beautiful and peaceful as ever.

I hope you enjoy this small glimpse of life on the Hill in August.
