Another "Irish Tradition" at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary04.14.18
There is (apparently) an Irish tradition of placing religious items, like Saints medals, in the foundations of buildings. Fr. Benedict O’Cinnsealaigh continued that tradition with the help of Mr. Dennis Eagan, vice president for finance and administration for the Athenaeum / Mount St. Mary’s Seminary of the West.
On Friday, April 13, Fr. Benedict O’Cinnsealaigh and Mr. Dennis Eagan placed blessed Saints medals into the foundation footers of Fenwick Hall a few hours before the concrete trucks showed up to begin the pour.
Fenwick Hall will have accommodations for 30 additional seminarians and include two conference rooms along with providing lodging for permanent deacons during weekend-long formation, visiting Bishops, and vocation directors.
Please continue to pray for the success of our Building Expansion Project. http://www.mtsm.org/seminaryexpansion/
