Orientation Week

NDS welcomed 40 new seminarians to an overall population of 126 seminarians, the largest enrollment in 15 years. The new seminarians participated in a week of orientation led by the faculty and an orientation team of returning seminarians. The day began each morning with Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament and then presentations from faculty and staff. Each evening a social event was sponsored including bowling at the iconic Rock N Bowl, a tour and dinner on the Natchez Steamboat, a home-cooked Cajun meal, volleyball, and fraternity in the seminarian recreation lounge.
