BRIGHTON-- More than 130 alumni gathered at St. Johnís Seminary for an evening of prayer, fellowship and conversations Oct. 27. The eveningís festivities began with tours of the seminary. Some alumni had not been back since it was renovated from 1997-1999. Seminarians served as hosts, and had the opportunity to meet and speak with their predecessors. Cardinal SeŠn P. OíMalley led the community at its daily holy hour and was assisted by the seminary schola. Afterwards, at the reception, Dr. Janet Hunt, the seminaryís director of music and organist, along with two colleagues, performed chamber music. Cardinal OíMalley highlighted the joy of welcoming so many priests, one of whom had not been back to St. Johnís in 55 years. Alumni traveled from every New England state, and some came from as far as the Vermont/Canadian border.
