NORWOOD -- Redemptoris Mater Seminary's Seventh Annual Gala Dinner honored Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, and Father Kevin J. O'Leary, rector of Boston's Cathedral of the Holy Cross, during an event that brought together priests, seminarians, and parishioners from local Boston parishes, June 2.
The annual dinner, held at Four Points by Sheraton in Norwood, also celebrated the 10th anniversary of the seminary's founding.
Established on Sept. 11, 2005, Redemptoris Mater Seminary, an archdiocesan missionary seminary, prepares priests for the new evangelization. Vocations pursued at the seminary, which is in Chestnut Hill, arise from the Neocatechumenal Way, an international itinerary of faith formation within the Catholic Church.
"We are happy to be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the founding of our Seminary on this Jubilee Year of Mercy," wrote seminary rector Father Antonio Medeiros in the program for the gala dinner.
"Although much has changed in the past 10 years, the need for holy priests in the Church remains as urgent today as it was then. May the Lord continue to bless his Church for many years to come with priests formed in this seminary whose hearts and minds are aflame with the love of God and the pastoral charity of Jesus Christ, our Good Shepherd," he continued.
