A Visit To The Abbey

November 1, 2012

from Holy Cross teacher and Vocation Club coordinator, Mrs. Carney –

Twenty-three sixth, seventh, and eighth graders traveled to Conception Abbey on October 29th to learn about vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Brother Etienne, a Benedictine monk, lead the tour of the Abbey and seminary.

Three seminarians, recent graduates of St. James Academy, visited with our young men and shared their vocation stories.  The young ladies visited the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.  They visited the beautiful chapel, learned about the many relics, and visited with Sister Ruth Elaine.

All students went to Mass at the Basilica with the monks and seminarians, followed by lunch in their private dining room.

Visita a la Abadía

 profesora y Coordinadora del Club de la vocaciones de Holy Cross, la Sra. Carney-

Veintitrés estudiantes del sexto, séptimo y octavo grado viajaron a la Abadía de la concepción el 29 de octubre para aprender sobre las vocaciones al sacerdocio y vida religiosa. El hermano Etienne, un monje benedictino, condujo la visita de la abadía y el seminario.

Tres seminaristas, recién graduados de la Academia de St James, estuvieron visitando y acompañando a nuestros jóvenes; también compartieron sus historias de vocación. Las señoritas visitaron a las Hermanas Benedictinas de la perpetua adoración. Visitaron la hermosa capilla, aprendieron sobre las muchas reliquias y visitaron a la hermana Ruth Elaine.

Todos los estudiantes fueron a Misa en la Basílica con los monjes y seminaristas, seguido de almuerzo en el  comedor privado de ellos.
