young adult retreat @ St Vincent DePaul Seminary

January 30, 2010 1 comment

First time ever, the seminarians at St Vincent DePaul Regional Seminary in Boyton Beach, FL led a retreat open for young adult of the Palm Beach Diocese.  I heard about it through my friends on FaceBook.  It was a Spirit-filled retreat … simple schedule … 3 seminarian testimonies … deep small group discussion … Benediction & Adoration … and lots of social time.

Even though I couldn’t stay for the whole retreat, I’m grateful to have been invited and grateful to see by brother seminarians at their finest at “home.”

Hopefully, with their great turnout, they can do more events to not only reach out to the community, but keep vocations on everyone’s minds and prayers!

See the Florida Catholic article that promoted the events.

Here’s some pictures I took of their beautiful chapel on campus:

my brothers @ St Vincent De Paul Regional Seminary

Today is arrival day for new Theologian seminarians at St Vincent De Paul Regional Seminary in Boyton Beach, FL.  Since I discerned leaving seminary formation just recently, I didn’t need to go, but I wanted to tell my classmates and seminary brothers personally about my discernment.  Luck for me, one of my brothers needed a ride, so I offered to drive him and his stuff (including “piano”) up there.

I still hope to keep in touch with most of them, through phone, Facebook and food (Sonic is right across the street).

God bless you guys and stay holy!
