Saint Meinrad Seminary & School of Theology

Formation and Education for the Life of the Church

Month In Pictures: October 2014

by Krista Hall

October is always a busy month on the Hill. The school semester has hit a mid-point, but several activities give students a break from the books and a little time for fellowship.

The Around the World party was held at the beginning of the month, where students get a chance to share food, dance and stories from their culture or region. The seminary soccer tournament was held toward the end of the month and presented the opportunity to meet seminarians from three other seminaries.

Other pictures from the School came from Mass, a CACD wood chop for Project Warm and from the Institute for Priests and Presbyterates' Gearing up to be a Pastor program.

The monastery vocations department teamed up with Monastery Immaculate Conception in Ferdinand for the Benedictine Hills Pilgrimage. Participants walked from Saint Meinrad to the monastery in Ferdinand, stopping at Monte Cassino Shrine on the way.

The vocation department also started sponsoring a monastic coffee break every other week in the Alumni Commons. The coffee break aims to transport a piece of the monastic community life over to the School, where many of the monks serve.

Pictures this month were taken by Novice Charles Peñalosa , seminarian Minh Vu and myself.
