We had lots of activities and visitors this weekend. First, our Board of Regents members arrived on Friday for their meetings in order to help offer input and feedback regarding the Seminary planning. Bishop Dendinger celebrated Mass Friday evening.

This weekend was our annual Thunder Cup Weekend, the soccer and volleyball tournament. The first round of soccer games began Saturday morning at 10:00 AM and continued into the afternoon. Conception Seminary played Our Lady of Guadalupe (Denton, NE) in their first game, but lost 4-2. CSC played St. Meinrad in their second game, but lost 2-1. They put forth a good effort, but weren’t able to win the championship this year. Instead, Mundelein beat St. Meinrad 6-0 on Sunday morning.
The CSC Volleyball game had a difficult outing in Saturday evening’s tournament. CSC had high hopes after placing second in the past two years, but at the end of the round robin tournament, St. Meinrad and Mundelein played in the championship game with Mundelein taking home the championship trophy. It was a disappointing weekend for CSC sports, but it was enjoyable to welcome 4 different seminaries to compete for the weekend.
