The Madison Seven

Scott of the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin (photo on left) is one of this year's new seminarians here at the Saint Paul Seminary. Though his diocese has more than thirty seminarians, currently Scott is the only one from Madison assigned to SPS.

As the seminary is reasonably close to Madison, the Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino, Bishop of the Diocese of Madison, invited his new seminarian to come home for the weekend and bring six of his new friends and brother-seminarians for dinner and a college hockey game.

Several posts on this weekend are on their way, but as a bit of a preview our schedule included: a drive to Madison, Wisconsin, late Friday afternoon, arriving at the Bishop O'Connor Pastoral Center in Madison, brunch with Monsignor Holmes, dinner with Bishop Morlino, a University of Wisconsin - Madison hockey game, and very inclement weather.

The Madison Seven, as we found ourselves, arrived back at the Saint Paul Seminary nearly one day after our scheduled return. We returned safe, tired, but yet also refreshed.

Stories from the trip are on their way - including a very photogenic Bishop.

Take care, -Jeremy
