The Madison Seven: Brunch with Monsignor Holmes

After arriving in Madison, Wisconsin, late on Friday evening (15 February) our first order of business was brunch with Monsignor Holmes, rector of the Cathedral of the Diocese. Scott - the only one of the thirty-some seminarians of Madison assigned to the Saint Paul Seminary - actually had the privilage of working with Monsignor Holmes in the Summer of 2007. Monsignor Holmes is a great man who clearly loves the Church and all of the people of God.

Not all that long ago, their Cathedral was destoryed by a fire caused by an arsonist. Monsignor Holmes has his hands more than full working through the processes of planning and building the structure that will become the new cathedral of the diocese.

After brunch, Scott treated us to a tour of beautiful State Street in downtown Madison and a brief tour of the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Then, it was off to dinner with His Excellency Robert C. Morlino, bishop of the Diocese.

How was our dinner with His Excellency? More posts on the Madison Seven are yet to come.

Take care, -Jeremy
