Seminarians have a Day of Prayer (Monday, July 17th); silence is observed

New friends and Catholic leaders from across the country will come to campus to experience the summer program Wednesday, July 19th and Thursday, July 20th.  Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, will celebrate Mass at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 20th. You are welcome to join us.

Week 8 - Prayer Intention: To experience a renewal and deepening of the graces received thus far in the summer and for the grace of PERSEVERANCE in the next-to-last week!
