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!
