090924_SJVCS-Mosaic-of-Mary-16-AWESOMEFor the last couple of years, Msgr Michael Carruthers (rector of SJVCS) and Peter Dionne (artist & seminarian, SJVCS class of 2008) have been working on a new mosaic to our Blessed Mother for the chapel gardens.  With today’s dedication of the new mosaic to Mary, the New Eve and Star of the Sea, here are some pictures posted by Fr Michael from mosaic conception through completion.

Wow!  Beautiful!  Surely our Lady is happy.

Also see dedication ceremony here.

Consecration prayer to Mary here.

Walk for Life @ SJVC seminary

Today is the annual “Walk for Life” done throughout the US with multiple locations around the Archdiocese of Miami.  Our seminary was one of the locations.  The day began with Mass with Miami Auxiliary Bishop Noonan with a full Chapel.

WORKLIST — today’s a cold day to drive the golf cart around, but someone has to do it.

WORKLIST (manual labor) — Cool weather was nice.  Busy day today with lots of palm branches to pick up.  Also found some proud weed-pullers.  I also caught my golf-cart partner Manuel swinging from a palm branch like a makak (Creole for “monkey”).  — Holy labor!

DARKNESS FALL on us during Evening Prayer right before dinner.  The winds picked up and there was an erie feeling in the air.

One of our Brother’s Mother made snack care packages for all 60 of us seminarians.  Thank you!

Volleyball was tonight.  Foot injury during basketball.

 

golf cart labor Jefes + Bishop’s Day Off

WORKLIST — On Wednesday afternoons we all have a Work List Job that involves some kind of manual labor around the seminary campus.  The job changes each semester. 

This semester, I’m the Work List Coordinator Assistant (that’s why I can’t drive the golf cart).  My job changes depending on the needs of all the areas of work but looking cool in a golf cart is the most important job description.  : )

 

BISHOP’s DAY OFF — With all our work we’ve done over the last couple weeks, and most especially yesterday’s celebration for Bishop Noonan’s 25th Priestly Anniversary, we were given a DAY OFF under special dispensation by the Bishop himself … which is this Friday! We LOVE our Bishop Noonan!  (not just for the day off, but that’s nice too!)
