Lenten retreat at St. Herman Seminary - 03/07/11

On March 7-9 the community of St. Herman Seminary was able to serve many liturgical services and prayerfully begin this season of repentance together. Although every year we have a special speaker come for our Lenten retreat, we were able to have this retreat at the beginning of Lent this year. The staff and students of St. Herman Seminary were privileged to hear from Fr. Thomas Andrew, pastor of Holy Assumption Church in Kenai. He spent three days speaking about issues of clergy families in the Diocese of Alaska. As a trained teacher and a ministering priest, he helped our seminarians see what life in ministry is like and give them an opportunity to connect with a graduate of St. Herman Seminary who serves the Diocese of Alaska.
