A little insight into the life of seminarians from various dioceses preparing for ministry as Roman Catholic priests, including daily activities, personal interests, special events, the spiritual life, news from the seminary, and almost whatever comes to our minds!

On Monday, there will be two major celebrations in the Church. In St. Paul, Bishop-elect Lee Piche will be ordained to serve as an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis. In Rome, the newly named archbishops will receive the pallium from Pope Benedict XVI. The pallium is made out of wool, which shows his role as chief shepherd of a given territory, and is given to those bishops who are charged with the care of a metropolitan. There are five nails attached to it to remind the archbishop of the five wounds of Christ.

A handful or so of American archbishops will be receiving the pallium.

We will get pictures of both events posted on the blog as soon as we can get them.
