There have been many activities going on these past few days. I’d like to think that the seminarians have spent most of the time preparing for their final examinations. Please keep their academic pursuits in your prayers! The last final exam is this Thursday. The seminarians will have Mass Friday morning and be free to depart for Christmas Vacation.
