Solemnity of St. Joseph

Bishop David Toups, the new bishop of Beaumont, delivered a formation conference to the seminary community as we celebrate the “Year of Saint Joseph” that was inaugurated by Pope Francis. The bishop made the visit on the Solemnity of Saint Joseph in which he celebrated Mass and then blessed the customary “Saint Joseph Altar.” Several thousand dollars and gift items were donated in which seminarians then packed and distributed to the local homeless people.
