To me, the photos from April show signs of the end of the school
year. Winter finally retreated and the Saint Meinrad grounds are
covered in vibrant greens, pinks and whites from all the flowering
trees and plants.
A lot of the events and annual traditions in April take place as
the semester is starting to wind down. The seminarians held the
Around the World party the first week in April to share and
celebrate all of the cultures and geographical locations
represented by the student body. The IV Theology seminarians and
some lay degree students attended the annual Graduates Luncheon
hosted by the Saint Meinrad Alumni Association.
Following yearly tradition, Br. John Mark Falkenhain created the
paschal candle that is lit at Easter and used in the Archabbey
Church throughout the year.
The students closed out the month with the deacon ordination.
Graduation will follow in just a few short weeks and the Hill will
be quiet for about a month until the youth arrive for the "One
Bread, One Cup," conferences.
