Our Lady of Lourdes
The Holy Season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, March 5.
Consult your local parish for Mass times, devotions and other seasonal events. Also check for rules on fast and abstinence.
This is a serious, somber time of preparation. We follow the Jewish triad of piety: prayer, fasting and almsgiving. This is to strengthen us to walk the way of Calvary. For it is only if we are there on Good Friday can we truly understand and rejoice on Easter Sunday.

We welcome our visitors, especially Bishops and Vocation Directors, to the Seminary. During the few days of their visit, they join the community for Mass and daily prayers. While here Vocations Directors meet with students studying for their own dioceses and also meet with other members of the community as well as staff and faculty members.
Rest in Peace
