Gearing Up for Pilgrimage, 2022!
November 16, 2022
“At the beginning, Oh Lord, you established the earth,
and the heavens are the works of your hands…
Well, it’s been another beautiful semester here at Mundelein Seminary, featuring fall foliage, football, and other fun seminary events interspersed between worship, coursework, and prayer.
By this midpoint of November, the leaves have all withered, and as of yesterday the sacred grounds of Mundelein welcomed it’s first snow of the season!
They will perish, but you remain: and they will grow old like a garment.
You will roll them up like a cloak, and like a garment they will be changed.
This abrupt change in the season coincides with another drastic change for one blessed class of Mundelein seminarians…
Just as the weather descends, the Class of 2024 Third Theologians (3T) will soon ascend to the sky and fly to Holy Land. This year’s annual pilgrimage will span mid November to early January. Please keep us in your prayers as our class rolls up its fall academic semester, and makes final preparations for the upcoming trip! We look forward to journeying with our Blessed Lord and with YOU on our 2022 Holy Land Pilgrimage.
But you are the same, and your years will have no end
We close this chapter in confidence, trusting that the same Lord Jesus who has called us from the beginning will be with us during these lifechanging months of Pilgrimage.
But to which of the angels has he ever said:
Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool?
Are you not all ministering spirits sent to serve,
for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation? ”
Hebrews 1: 10-14
