On September 9th, over 600 guests joined St. Patrick’s in honoring Walk for Life West Coast co-founders, Eva Muntean and Dolores Meehan, at the 10th Annual Gala celebration. This year’s Gala drew the largest crowd in its 10-year history.
The evening began with Vespers, celebrated by President-Rector Rev. George Schultze, SJ. Fr. Schultze opened his homily with a reminder that man’s condition is that of a traveler, a pilgrim, and that this pilgrimage of life must be characterized by continuous prayer. He cited the Divine Office, the celebration of which is a hallmark of a house of formation, as one of the principal ways in which this ongoing prayer is realized. Fr. Schultze closed his homily by stating his hope that “St. Patrick’s Seminary & University and its faithful supporters be a community of constant prayer and holy deeds as we continue in this important work of forming faithful and holy priests for our future.”
