May Crowning: May 8, 2016
On the second Sunday of May, which was Mothers' Day, Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary held its annual May Crowning of the Blessed Virgin Mary. After praying Vespers and singing the Litany of Loreto, the seminarians and priests processed into the main hall of the seminary where there is a large statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe. One of the girls who had recently made her First Holy Communion from the local FSSP apostolate processed in with a crown of flowers and placed it on the head of Our Lady, after Fr. Joseph Lee had blessed it.

Seminary Outing to Kansas City FSSP Apostolate: April 15-17, 2016
Over the weekend of April 15-17, priests and seminarians of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary visited the FSSP Apostolate in Kansas City, St. Rose Philippine Duchesne Parish, where they were warmly greeted by Fr. Fongemie (St. Rose's pastor), Fr. Nolan, Fr. Curtis, and the parishioners. After having dinner prepared by the parish's Ladies' Altar Society, seminarians traveled back to the homes of parishioners where they would spend the evenings of the weekend. The next day, Saturday, was a free day for seminarians to visit Kansas City and its surrounding area. On Sunday, there were two Solemn High Masses celebrated at the parish, after which the seminarians were given a last opportunity to meet and talk with the parishioners after the Masses before returning to the seminary that afternoon.
Priests and seminarians express their deep gratitude to Fr. Fongemie, Fr. Nolan, Fr. Curtis, and all the parishioners for their generous hospitality and for making the enjoyable weekend possible. May God reward them for their generosity.
