What has been your favorite/most memorable story of your time at Mundelein thus far?

My favorite memory from seminary so far was visiting Purdue University with a few of my brother seminarians over fall break to evangelize and talk to students.  This experience forced me outside of my comfort zone to talk with strangers about the faith.  While it was a little nerve wracking in the beginning, I was able to have some great conversations. It was inspiring to see the openness of Purdue’s students to hearing the Gospel.   Outside of the evangelization we did, we were able to get to know each other much better.  We had a lot of fun and I will always value my friendships with the men on the trip.
