Yesterday afternoon seminarians, monks, and faculty gathered to honor and recognize Fr. Samuel’s many years of service at Conception Seminary College. At the end of the semester, Fr. Samuel will finish his term as President-Rector, a role he began in 2007. His years of work in priestly formation, however, began more than 30 years ago as he faithful filled the role of chaplain and Dean of Students. Faculty and seminarians shared their memories and expressed their appreciation (often with a good bit of humor) as they spoke of Fr. Samuel’s significant influence in the seminary. His work will change, but certainly not conclude at this point.
