All Souls’ Day Mass today was with Miami Archbishop Favolora at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Cemetery in Doral, FL.  A beautiful service and we visited the graves of Miami priests & bishops of the archdiocese.  Our classes were cancelled for the day and we returned to finish setting up for tonight’s Vocation Awareness Weekend, where 50+ young men from all over Florida are considering the priesthood.
