Blessing of OLGS Cemetery: October 21, 2015

On October 21, Fr. John Berg, Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, blessed the recently constructed cemetery at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary.

Gerard Saguto offered a Solemn Requiem Mass immediately afterwards. While Mass was offered for all deceased members of the Fraternity, the Mass ended in a procession back to the cemetery to bless the grave sites of Fr. Zolnerowicz and Fr.

Seminary Colorado Outing: September 25-28, 2015

Priests and seminarians of Our Lady of Guadalupe traveled to Colorado for the last weekend of September, where they were warmly received by priests and families of the Fraternity's Apostolate in Littleton, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish. On Saturday, seminarians hiked up to the top of nearby Mt. Evans. Though the thin air made climbing the mountain difficult, the seminarians could not have been more blessed with the clear weather and with the view that awaited them at the top. For Sunday Mass the next day, the seminarians were all present for a Solemn High Mass at OLMC, after which they joined parishioners at a nearby park for their annual parish picnic. In addition to enjoying good food and conversation, they also took part in soft ball and ultimate frisbee games.

The priests and seminarians of OLGS would like to thank the priests and families of OLMC for their generous hospitality and for a memorable weekend.
