Formation and Education for the Life of the Church

Month In Pictures: June 2015

After the students leave in May, the Hill is relatively quiet until the middle of June when the "One Bread, One Cup" conferences start. This year, conferences one and two took place in June and with that brought a flurry of life and activity that I'm told the monks look forward to. From community building to liturgical arts, there is never a dull moment, or photo, from OBOC.

Family and friends of Fr. Luke Waugh, OSB, were on the Hill in early June for Fr. Luke's priesthood ordination. Later that month, he presided at the Benedictine Oblate investiture ceremony during the Oblate Study Days. Br. John Mark Falkenhain, OSB, spoke to oblates about oblation as a vocation during the retreat.

Priests of the Archdiocese of Louisville were also on the Hill this past month for a retreat about cultural diversity.

This week marks a brand-new month and we look ahead to the final OBOC conference, the feast of Our Lady of Einsiedeln and the homiletics week for Memphis permanent deacon candidates, before the Alumni Reunion in August.

Photos this month were taken by seminarian Minh Vu, Novice Charles Peñalosa and me.
