November kicked off with All Saints and All Souls days. In the
evening on Nov. 1, the seminarians processed to the Archabbey
Cemetery and placed candles on the departed monks' tombstones. In
the morning on Nov. 2, the monastic community processed to the
cemetery to remember their deceased brothers.
In the monastery, Fr. Damian Schmelz, OSB, was designated a
Sagamore of the Wabash at the beginning of the month, and the
vocations office attended the National Catholic Youth Conference.
Saint Meinrad's "One Bread, One Cup" program was also represented
at the conference.
November presented the opportunity to photograph seminarians and
alumni in their ministry assignments. From teaching children's
catechesis to playing bingo with seniors, it's always nice to see
the Saint Meinrad education put into practice.
Pictures were taken by seminarian Luke Hassler, Br. Lorenzo
Peñalosa and Krista Hall.
