Events of 2010
8 DECEMBER 2010
The feast of the Immaculate Conception is the day chosen by Archbishop Lefebvre for the engagements of members into the Society of St. Pius X.
This year, two seminarians renewed their engagement, while Seminary professor Fr. Christoph Pfluger made his perpetual engagement into the SSPX.
After the Solemn High Mass, in order to bring the three month Vocations Crusade to a fitting close, Fr. Griego blessed a crown and then crowned a statue of Our Lady of Fatima. This was followed by a procession around the Seminary.
The Crusade was dedicated to Our Lady and so, at the end, all of the many prayers, sacrifices, and good works sent in to the Seminary from around the world were given to Our Lady, in order that She may present them to Her Son and obtain a rich harvest of vocations for Holy Cross and the SSPX.
At the end of October, the Seminary traveled to Tynong on a mission to recruit vocations.
The activities of the three day weekend included Solemn High Masses, Benedictions, a conference on vocations, a sausage sizzle with the faithful, and a breakfast with the secondary boys.
May God grant many fruits from the seeds planted!
