New apostolate

March 14, 2014

In addition to our studies, prayer and community responsibilities, seminarians also engage in apostolic works. I’ve written about this in the past as for the better part of my first two years in Rome I served as tour guide for St. Peter’s Basilica and assisted in the Office of US Visitors to the Vatican.

This year I have received a new assignment. I now assist with campus ministry at the John Felice Rome Center, the Rome based campus of Loyola University Chicago. It has been a great privilege and learning opportunity to accompany these students on the journeys. In particular studying abroad provides a new set of challenges and opportunities.

On Sundays we join the students for Mass in the evening and a few times a month we have fellowship with pizza after Mass as well. Additionally, during the week we host and organize a variety of activities these range from Praise and Worship to a vocations night and instead of “Theology on Tap” we have “Theology Uncorked.” Once a semester we also take the students on a pilgrimage to Assisi.

    How very Italian–“uncorked.” Love it.
