Mass of Reparation Celebrated for the Sins of Clergy

On the Solemnity of All Saints, the seminary community gathered in the front circle to pray the Litany to the Sacred Heart imploring God’s mercy asking for forgiveness for sins committed on the seminary campus as well as sins committed by alumni clergy of NDS. Holy Water was sprinkled to re-dedicate the seminary to Our Lady. The dark forces of the Evil One tarnish the mission of the Church when sins are committed by clergy and victims of these sins lose hope in God. The year 2020 has brought challenge to the Church, and we pray the Lord bless the mission of Notre Dame Seminary as we continue to form faithful priests of God.
