Getting Ready...

All the windows are washed, inside and out.  A crane arrives this week to move the enormous conference table in Bishop Cheverus room (in the basement) to the Cardinal Law Room (on the third floor).  Most of the seminarian rooms have been painted, orientation mailings have gone out and we're into the last few rounds of admissions interviews.  The Calendar has been set and the new Trustees Handbook is in print.  The agenda is ready for the extended Faculty Advisory Council meetings and the duck boat tour has been booked.  Transportation and accomodations for the Papal Mass in Washington D.C. are complete.  The final adjustments to class schedules are done and the ornamental pipes have been installed in the new organ.

We're getting ready for our 29 new seminarians (most new men in over a decade!) and the "old men" as well!

Please keep the new seminarians in your prayers, along with all the folks who work behind the scenes to paint and plan, budget and balance and get everything ready to welcome everyone home to this holy house!
