About thirty seminarians who remained at the Mount partook in the annual Thanksgiving feast hosted by the Knights of Columbus Fr. McKenna Council from Mother Seton Parish in Germantown, MD. Numerous guests and Mount faculty joined the Knights and seminarians for the sumptuous feast. In all, about sixty people participated in the holiday events. The entire seminary community is grateful to the Germantown Knights for their generous hosting of different events for the seminarians each year.

Many other seminarians spent the break in an interesting fashion including three men (Tony Visintainer S’16, Savannah, Neil Kirchoefer S’15, Peoria, and Jacob Toliver, S’15, Peoria) who traveled with Alexander Buder (S’15, Washington) to his family’s island home on Martha’s Vineyard, MA. Meanwhile, the 9 seminarians from the Diocese of Lincoln enjoyed their annual Thanksgiving trip to the ocean of Avalon, NJ where they joined their diocesan brothers from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary.
