End of the Year… And where, I will be this summer…

Well, here it is the end of my sophomore year in College seminary! It has been a year full of many blessings, great joys, saddnesses, and growth. I am currently in the middle of taking a break from finals studying, so I will make this short and sweet.

Congratulations to one of my Bruté, brother seminarians, Dominic Rankin (who is also from Quincy, IL. and the Diocese of Springfield)Dominic was recently accepted to study at the Pontifical North American College in Rome, for Major Seminary! Congrats Dominic! Here is a link to his blog post about it, as well as his other fantastic blog posts: http://openwidethedoorsforchrist.blogspot.com/2014/04/an-important-announcement-ii.html

I will be leaving Saturday for home, I will get home later that afternoon, and then take Emily to Murray to leave for her Mission Trip at 2am. (Eek!) actually, I rather enjoy late night trips like that, because of the prayer time they give me. There is something so beautiful and natural of being the only one on a dark road with stars out and praying to Christ.

Wednesday I will leave for staff training at camp. Yes, that’s right! I will be back at camp this summer. I’m looking forward to it!

Dominic’s blog

Dominic’s blog

I always find it to be a great help when people send information about my blog and website out to their friends, so I always try to help any new bloggers out, by sharing their links on my site. This blog I am sharing is the blog of a fellow Bishop Bruté Seminarian, (Though he has been blogging for a while) He is also: Coordinator of music for the Seminary, a great friend, and he is from Quincy, IL as well! Except, he actually still lives there. He is a parishioner at St. Francis Solanus, (My Grandparent’s church) and attends Mass at the FSSP Chaplaincy of St. Rose of Lima. (Beautiful church, that was shut down, but re-opened in Quincy due to the Latin Mass! (Deo Gracias!) It is another unique building as well, and very beautiful, I’m glad that they were able to re-open. So check out Dominic’s site! Check out his pictures and keep up to date with him, because his blog should be really good, as he is a really great guy! Good luck and welcome to the wide-world of Catholic bloggers Dominic!
