Spring semester in the Seminary and School of Theology is in
full swing. There were several events in the school in February.
Bishop John Stowe, OFM Conv. of the Diocese of Lexington celebrated
the semester opening Mass, Dr. Cecilia Moore presented the annual
Black History Lecture and, for the fifth year in a row, the
international seminarians had an outing at the Carmelite Monastery
in Terre Haute.
In the monastery, Archabbot Kurt Stasiak, OSB, blessed the
infirmary plaque on February 2 and Fr. Gavin Barnes, OSB, died
February 6. Also, bell six was removed from the bell tower on
February 8 to have a crack repaired.
February is often a slower, quieter month at Saint Meinrad.
Students return from Christmas break and are getting back into the
daily routine and it's cold and gray outside. Even as winter sets
in on the Hill, there is always plenty to photograph.
I hope you enjoy February's month in pictures. Mary Jeanne
Schumacher and Krista Hall and seminarians Minh Vu and Deacon Jerry
Pratt took the pictures in this month's post.
