Back to School!

We are in our second week of the fall semester and the school routine is starting to kick in. I am taking 6 courses, plus am finishing up work on 2 independent study courses that I started in the summer. I am also the master of ceremonies for the Wednesday Mass and leader of the contemporary/charismatic praise and worship hour on Sundays. It is going to be a busy semester.

The summer was awesome. As you can read from my other posts, I was involved in a lot of things.

The Seminarian Life Link Conference (sponsored by Priests for Life) was really incredible. The information made available about pro-life and the activities really helped to educate myself and the other seminarians in attendance.

Then I spent a week in DC with my brother and his family. I did one day of site seeing on the “mall” – basically I visited the National Gallery and other art museums and spent a whole day getting cultured. I also visited the Main Reading Room at the Library of Congress – very nice!

Then on Saturday we were given a private tour of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. It is an awesome place!!!!! I suggest every Catholic, and even non-Catholics, go see this monument to the Lord. I also had the honor of serving at the noon Mass in the Crypt Church. After that we visited the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center and attended evening Mass at a Franciscan Monestary – WHAT A DAY!

Be blessed this fall and keep those in your prayers who are affected by natural disaster (like hurricane Katrina), war and terrorism, and especially those affected by abortion.
