Fr. Gary Caster (S' 92, Peoria) returned to the Mount this past week, November 17-18, to preach the annual Fall Day of Renewal. The event began on Thursday night with an evening conference before concluding the next day with two conferences and Mass. Each year, the Mount offers abbreviated retreats in both the Fall and Spring semesters to give the seminarians an opportunity to focus on spiritual formation. This brief time of solitude with the Lord is especially appreciated in the midst of the heightened exams and papers which are oftentimes numerous this time of year.
