Vocation Club Tours The Abbey

May 1, 2012

from Holy Cross 6th-grade teacher and Vocations Club coordinator, Mrs. Carney –

Twenty-five students from Holy Cross participated in an amazing field trip to Benedictine Abbey on Tuesday, April 24.

The Holy Cross Vocation Club sponsored the trip. The students enjoyed a beautiful day learning about the life of the monks in the Abbey, as well as some fantastic architectural knowledge and history about the church and chapels. Fr. James Albers shared many inspiring stories throughout the tour.

The students participated in Mass in St. Joseph’s chapel, said mid-day prayers with the monks, and shared lunch in the dining hall typically reserved only for the monks. Finally, the students received a tour of the Benedictine campus led by a highly energetic college student. Holy Cross students played games, prayed at a grotto, and took in the beautiful sights of the campus. They even had the opportunity to meet the president of the college.

A spectacular day was had by all.
