I will start with weekend fun from the beginning of October.
My brother Michael started his seminary studies this fall, and we celebrated with him at the family day festivities at Mundelein. My parents came into the city for the event. It was really wonderful to see Michael in his new element, getting into the routine and discipline of seminary studies and prayers.
Who would have guessed that Michael would be the holy on in the family?
The campus is quite lovely. We enjoyed an architecture tour, Mass and lunch with Michael’s new friends and a good old fashioned ride on a restored fire engine, the personal hobby of one of the priests at the seminary.
And to top the day off, we had a dinner and early celebration of Michael’s birthday.
Study hard Michael. And pray hard too. We are very proud of you!
