Borromeo Weekend is named after St. Charles Borromeo, patron saint of seminarians. One purpose of this weekend is to foster greater fraternity between the men of the St. Paul Seminary and St. John Vianney Seminary through various forms of prayer and opportunities for fellowship.
This weekend also will provide an opportunity to open the doors of the seminary to the greater university community, outside of its regular liturgical schedule. It also is a chance for seminarians, other students of the university, faculty and staff to pray together in the presence of the Holy Eucharist.
