New Statue of St. Paul to be blessed Wednesday, September 3


The new statue of St. Paul has been installed at the St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity of the University of St. Thomas.

The statue will be blessed at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 3, in the seminary's courtyard. The media are welcome to attend and photograph the blessing. Due to space limitations, the blessing and Mass are not being announced as public events.

Archbishop John Nienstedt of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis will bless the statue. Immediately following the blessing he will celebrate Mass marking the start of a new school year at the seminary.

The new statue is easy to find. The seminary is located at the far western end of Summit Avenue, at Mississippi River Boulevard. The entrance to the seminary campus is located on Summit, about one block up the hill from Mississippi River Boulevard. When you enter the campus, the entrance to the courtyard will be in about half a block, on your right.
