In March, sixteen people came to campus for a visit, to learn more about vocations in the Church, and to contemplate God’s will for them. We pray your time here was a blessing and that we’ll see you again soon. In addition to presentations, visiting classes, a student panel, and a campus tour, the group visited the Saint Louis Basilica Cathedral, the tomb of C.F.W. Walther, and other Saint Louis sites.
Two events are fast approaching . . .

whoever looks at the child in the manger and sees

– Dietrich Bonhoeffer, God Is in the Manger
