Dear Family and Friends,

Yesterday we all went on a hike to the beach and had a picnic. The water was refreshing, and it was nice to get out of the city for a break from studies. We played beach volleyball  - won 21-17 :) - and after lunch had a softball game - lost 9-14 :(

countdown to ordination

The other seminarians have started a countdown to our diaconate ordination. They have posters all over the seminary with our photos and a number count – which is at 22 today. It’s getting close!

new alb
As well, we received our new albs today. The alb is the white garment the priest wears underneath his priestly vestments. I tried mine on and it fits like a charm.

Pope Francis with dove
A friend sent me a beautiful photo of Pope Francis at the audience the other day. A dove landed on his hand – great sign!

My eschatology exam this morning went great. That’s three down, three to go!

God bless you,
Brother Kevin
