To kick off the Family Weekend, a Solemn High Mass Mass in honor of the Holy Name of Mary was offered on September 12. It was followed by a procession with a statue of Our Lady. The procession paused at the entrance of the Seminary to sing the Litany of Loreto. After lunch, Fr. Christopher Curtis gave a lecture on the importance of music in raising good families. Following his own performance on the guitar, several others stepped forward to play their favorite instrument.
