Amidst the turmoil in the world, St. Patrick's Seminary remains a wonderful oasis of calm that is perfect for our priests and seminarians to enhance their spiritual growth through prayer and contemplation.
One favorite location to pray has become the front porch of the Saint John Vianney Commons which overlooks the Marian Garden. It has four white rocking chairs and will soon have some additional tables. One of our priests noted that it is one of the most beautiful spots on the seminary grounds .
One addition to the Marian Garden is the recent installation of the medallion at the base of the Our Lady of Fatima statue. The letters AM represents the first letters of Ave Maria. The entire garden looks beautiful since it is in its full summer bloom. You can learn about the construction of the Marian Garden here.
The campus is closed to all visitors not on seminary business. However, you can enjoy a look from the pictures below.
God bless you all and please be safe.
