After the quiet and calm of January, there was a lot of activity
in the seminary in February. Our strongest pictures this month came
from those events.
The international seminarians had their annual outing to the
Carmelite monastery in Terre Haute on February 6. For the last five
years, the international seminarians have spent the Saturday before
Ash Wednesday at the Carmelite Monastery, participating in a
multilingual Mass with the nuns and sharing their heritages through
food, music, stories and dance.
On February 9, the seminarians gathered for a Mardi Gras parade
and talent show in the Alumni Commons. The following week,
Archbishop Tobin of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, was on the
Hill to install the ministry of lector to 17 seminarians and the
ministry of acolyte to 18.
One final photo came from Mass with the monastic community on
Ash Wednesday. The community lines up and turns in theirbona
operaor good works card before Archabbot Justin distributes ashes
on top of the monks' heads.
Minh Vu and Krista Hall photographed the images in this month's
post. To view more of the happenings on the Hill, please visit our
