7th Annual Rectors’ Bowl—St. Paul Seminary Sons of Thunder vs. St. John Vianney Men of the Church
When: 7pm Saturday, October 21
Where: O’Shaughnessy Stadium at the University of St. Thomas (located on the corner of Cretin and Summit Aves. in St. Paul)
Not even the Tommie/Johnnie game compares to this! Come and see some great football action as the undefeated St. Paul Seminary Sons of Thunder take on the St. John Vianney Men of the Church. Head Coach Monsignor Aloysius Callaghan has every confidence that the Sons will hold onto the trophy and the well-deserved title of prevailing football champions. Coach Father William Baer and the youthful Men anticipate plenty of exciting action as they expect to upset this long-standing tradition and bring the trophy home! There will event be concessions and a pep band! Future Priest s of the Third Millenium
I hope there won't too many wounded in this gridiron battle. A full complement of the SJV men are expected to show up the next day at Lumen Christi parish in Highland Park where their Coach/Rector, Father William Jennings Bryan (old "Cross of Gold" himself) Baer, will be the featured homilist (and explain why he likes to punt on third down) at the 10:45 a.m. Mass. A light Dutch Treat brunch will follow, excuses will received from players and coaches and a good time will be had by all.
Lumen Christi Parish is just a block from the Highland Parking shopping area in St Paul , southeast of Cleveland and Ford Parkway.
