My dear sister in Christ:
As we pause to acknowledge the blessings of this season, I want you to know that your service of family, friends and vocations to the priesthood is greatly appreciated by The Saint Paul Seminary. You are indeed cause for thanksgiving for many.
Mindful of the gift you so generously give, I hope you will consider receiving a gift from us. I am writing to invite you to a morning of recollection at The Saint Paul Seminary sponsored by our Women's Auxiliary.
Our second annual Women's Advent Morning of Recollection will be Saturday, December 15, from 8:00 to 11:30 a.m. The morning will begin for those who are able with Mass at 8:00 a.m. and Fr. Christopher Beaudet will lead the two reflections following hospitality. Fr. Beaudet's theme will be "The Domestic Seminary: Preparing our families to encounter Christ." The morning will end promptly at 11:30 a.m.
Once again, here is the schedule:
8:00 a.m. Mass
8:40 - 9:15 Registration and Hospitality
9:20 - 10:00 First Reflection
10:00 - 10:40 Confessions (several priests on hand)
10:40 - 11:20 Second Reflection and Benediction
You are welcome to invite your friends and other women as well. I would only ask that you call and register with Nancy at 651.962.5795 so that we can be suitably prepared. There is no charge for the morning; it is our Christmas gift to you.
Again, that you for all you give. Please join use for a morning of Advent preparation for Christmas.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Monsignor Aloysius R. Callaghan
