I went to Saint Meinrad last weekend to graduate with a Master of Arts in Catholic Thought and Life. I was one of 45 that graduated (the official announcement is here). It was great to see everyone again, to be back on the “hill”, and to have some of my family there to share the event and the beautiful surroundings.
My older brother and sister were there along with most of their families. I gave some tours, we spent time at the Unstable, I also got to sit in with the house band on Saturday night – that was really nice. I really had a good time and look forward to going back in October for my class’s deacon ordination.
Now I need to start on the next graduate degree, a Master of Theological Studies. The classroom requirements have already been met, so now I need to complete the thesis. Fun stuff – yeah right!!!! I have the next five years to do it, but I am going to option for the spring, then I can graduate with my original class.
