We welcomed back our alumni from Conception Seminary for the 2014 Alumni Reunion (Sept. 19-20). Alumni and guests arrived Friday in time for Mass and the Alumni Award Presentation (presented to alumnus Vic LeBreton) in the Basilica. Archbishop Jerome Hanus, OSB, presided at Eucharist with many alumni priests in attendance. The prayers for Mass were taken from the Evangelization of Peoples, and Archbishop gave an excellent homily reflecting upon Pope Francis’ exhortation, The Joy of the Gospel.
Following Mass was the Social Hour in St. Michael Hall Plaza, where we had a beautiful evening to visit before heading into the Guest Dining room for the Banquet.
