Eastertide begins!

We’re back in full-time action here at the House. Courses for Easter term started up yesterday and will continue through mid-May. The student body is refreshed and joyful to be back together after a long holiday break. This semester offers a diverse array of courses. From the Anglican Choral Tradition to Theological Latin, Ascetical Theology to Pastoral Ministry, seminarians are plunging head first into books (and The Book, of course) and already formulating research paper topics.If this semester keeps us as busy as the last (which it most certainly will), it will seem like no time at all until the green grass and budding flowers of May!

One new Nashotah House feature is a “local” coffee brewing station by our classrooms in the cloister. Instead of making a rota of students play “Javatokos” each week, hauling jumbo urns of java across campus, we can now brew coffee right outside our classrooms. Excitement (and caffeination) abounds!

 

Juniors and one-year students were trained to “throw smoke” yesterday, a most enlightening and important time of thurifer education. What can we say? St. Mary’s is a smoke-friendly chapel. 

We ask your prayers this semester over our student body — for our encouragement and diligence, for our individual fundraising adventures, and most of all, that our work, prayer, and study would glorify our Almighty God!
