Holy Week -- Wonderful Memories of Seminary Days

Holy Week was always a very special time here at Mount Michael, but especially during seminary days when it was St. John's Seminary. I will always cherish those memories.

For the last few years we have brought back some practices that we did in seminary days -- like the Seder Meal. Although we did not have the Seder meal as such this year, we did have what we call the Service Meal. We had lunch in the gym -- family style. The adult at each table served the main dish to all the students at the table. This was done in fashion (of sorts) as we do in the abbey-- the abbot waits tables that night and then he washes feet at the Holy Eucharist later.

Below are some photos of our Service Meal of 2014
