Twelve new seminarians were welcomed to Theological College on August 24 by an enthusiastic orientation team that hosted the week’s introduction to seminary life and academics at Catholic University. After the first day’s move-in, room blessings, and meetings with the rector and faculty, the rest of the days were focused on different aspects of the upcoming life of recollection, community, and study. The men were afforded daily recreation opportunities as well, such as an evening social, a shopping excursion, a DC scavenger hunt, a barbeque with all returning seminarians, and the annual opening dinner banquet. Daily Liturgy, Eucharistic Adoration, and Morning and Night Prayer informed their work and relaxation, led not only by TC’s formation faculty, but Bishop Roy Campbell and Cardinal Wilton Gregory also participated in this prayerful welcome to campus.
