I have just returned to the office from a conference and vacation. While on vacation, I went to Alumni Days at Theological College where we currently have three men in formation. Because of the Year for Priests, TC held alumni days in conjunction with a Symposium on the Mysteries of Priesthood also sponsored by The Catholic University of America and the School of Theology and Religious Studies (the above link takes you to a summary where you can also find a link to the video of each presentation).

I managed to reconnect with many of my friends who are priests while at Alumni Days and while on vacation. It was a great opportunity to catch up, share old stories, and make new memories. After almost five years of priesthood, I was moved by the comfort and companionship I feel being a priest. Metaphorically, I realized that priesthood is my home, it is where I belong and where I am at peace. Now more that ever I am grateful for the community of my brother priests and, again, for those who desire to follow God's call to the priesthood.

Jason and Christopher are two of our seminarians at Thelogical College.
