Pastor's Day at Conception
March 1st, 2010 was Pastor's Day at Conception Seminary. Seminarians invited their respective pastors to join them for the day or for a few days at Conception. Many pastors from the different dioceses that Conception serves arrived, some on Sunday, the 28th of February and many more on Monday.
The pastors who had arrived by 11:45am on Monday con-celebrated daily Mass in the basilica. At 5:15pm the pastors and their seminarians attended Vespers with the monks followed by a banquet in the student dining room. The Conception Mariachi band played a few songs as the pastors and students filed into the dining room.
After the banquet there was a concert in St. Michael's gym at 8pm. The concert, entitled "Windfire" was given by Mr. and Mrs. John Kasica who played several songs using different flutes and percussion instruments. A brief reception followed the conclusion of the concert. Many pastors stayed overnight and con-celebrated daily Mass in the student oratory Tuesday morning.
