The taking of the cassock of the first-year seminarians took place on the 40th anniversary of the blessing of the seminary foundation stone.

On the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin, ascended body and soul into heaven, and on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the blessing of the first stone of the seminary by His Excellency Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the spiritual seminarians received the cassock.

Thank God, this first year has 9 members, including a large contingent of 7 Mexicans, mainly because last year, in 2020, half of them were unable to travel to enter the seminary. In addition, there are 1 Nicaraguan and 1 Argentinian.

The day, which threatened to be rather gloomy due to the dense fog that hung over the entire region, finally brightened up with the solemn mass celebrated by the director, Father Arnaud de Lassus. The only downside is that the families, with the exception of the Argentine seminarian, were unable to attend the ceremony due to health problems.

With the passage of first-year seminarians from the secular habit to the clerical habit, the seminary seems to be adorned with greater solemnity. Now all wear the livery of Christ.

We take this opportunity to ask for your prayers for the perseverance of these young men who have made a visible commitment to the path of the priesthood.
