Last Friday I traveled to South Bend, Indiana to the campus of the University of Notre Dame. I spent the weekend attending the graduation festivities of Gregory, one of the three men who is planning on entering this monastery this July. Though the weather was not the greatest (it was overcast and rained part of the time), it was still a wonderful and joyful weekend.
Commencement was Sunday morning in the Notre Dame football stadium.
Below: After the celebrations on Sunday I went to our daughterhouse in Benet Lake, Wisconsin to meet with two other vocation candidates. While I was there I flew the drone to capture some aerial photos of the place. Even though it was still overcast, it’s a beautiful place right near the lake.
