Seminarians returned to Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary on August 30 to begin their new academic year. His Excellency Fabian Bruskewitz, Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Lincoln, gave the retreat for returning seminarians before they began their studies.
Eighteen men were accepted to begin their studies for the priesthood at OLGS. They start their year on Septeber 11, 2014.
Summer Break and Fr. Kenneth Walker, FSSP
The seminarians are currently on summer break. Each of the men spend approximately four weeks on various apostolate assignments which include working at parish assignments, summer camps, retreats and even a mission trip to South America. The rest of the summer is used to visit family and benefactors, to rest, and to prepare for the upcoming school year. Please keep the seminarians in your prayers that they may have a fruitful and safe summer and be prepared to resume their academic training in the fall.
The priests, seminarians, faculty and staff of the Seminary gratefully acknowledge the condolences and prayers offered by the faithful for the repose of the soul of Fr. Kenneth Walker, FSSP who died tragically on June 11. Fr. Walker is an alumnus of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary and was ordained in the Class of 2012.
