“Family Weekend” at the Seminary

Posted on September 21, 2021

Over the weekend of September 17-19, 2021, family members of our seminarians were welcomed on campus for quality family time. Everyone gathered around a campfire Friday evening and caught up with their loved ones. Saturday morning began with a tour of the seminary. “Old Number One,” the firetruck that Cardinal Mundelein donated to the fire department, also came for a visit. Mass was said in the Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto followed by a cookout and hayrides. Family games and the much-anticipated baseball game followed. An organ concert with our director of music Linda Cerabona and organist David Rhodes was offered in the Theatre. Families departed after Mass and brunch on Sunday morning.
