Seminarians connect, reconnect

Mike Brummond is excited to have a date set for his ordination to the priesthood.
"Things are becoming more real, I have a date set on a calendar for ordination," he said. "It puts things in perspective when it's that close."
Brummond said his greatest experience as a seminarian was meeting Pope John Paul II three years ago at a private Mass and being close enough to hold the pope's hand and to kiss his ring. The third year theology student from Menasha is studying at the North American College in Rome.
Brummond was one of 13 seminarians who last week took part in the annual seminarian retreat at Holy Name Retreat House on Chambers Island in Door County. The retreat allows seminarians - who attend four different seminaries - to reconnect, as well as to meet some members of the Serra Club, which promotes vocations to the priesthood.
After being away for a year, Brummond was able to reconnect with other seminarians and meet the new seminarians. Full story ...
