40 Hours of Eucharistic Adoration at the St. Paul Seminary

This post is on the St. Paul Seminary's 40 Hours of Eucharistic Devotion, the St. Charles Borremeo Weekend.

Monsignor Aloysius Callaghan, J.C.D. - Rector of the St. Paul Seminary

Friday October 31, 2008:

Vigil Mass for the Feast of All Saints was held at the St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel on the University of Saint Thomas' North Campus. After Mass both the Saint Paul Seminary & the Saint John Vianney Seminary of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul-Minneapolis processed the Blessed Sacrament in a Monstrance across campus.

St. Charles Borremeo is the Patron Saint of Seminarians This is one of the most exciting and spiritually fulfilling times of the St. Paul Seminary school year. Not only do all the seminarians pray in front of the Blessed Sacrament, but members of our Catholic community from all over the Archdiocese come to pray and be with Christ at the seminary. It is absolutely wonderful!

The procession was approximately an hour long, ending in Saint Mary's Chapel of the Saint Paul Seminary. We capped off the opening of our weekend celebration with Compline.

The Eucharist will be exposed in Saint Mary's Chapel until Mass on Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
