Our seminarian, Walter Flynn, sent this report this morning along with these photos.
Sorry I haven’t sent an update in a while.
We are nearing the halfway point of the semester (!!!). Things have been going well.
We have slipped into the usual routine of school life: readings, papers, midterms, readings, readings….readings. You know how it is.
The big news from TO is the unusual weather we’re having here. This thing called “snow”.
After three winters here, I really thought snow was not native to Toronto, but this year has been a banner year for it.
Even the locals are amazed.
In the Seminary, we have been busy preparing for Lent.
Last Monday (Feb 5), we had our Candlemas Holy Hour by candlelight.
Last night, we had our Winter 20-Decade Rosary with Adoration. We begin our Lenten Recollection on Friday, to be followed next week by Reading Week.
Pray for us as we enter the tricky part of the semester, when the papers, readings and exams really ramp up. I will be home by the end of April. I will be returning to work at the hospital again. Then I will start my year-long Internship somewhere. I’m looking forward to August when I will take a whole month off to rest and prepare, mentally and spiritually, for Internship.
Be assured of my prayers for all of you. Charlottetown Diocese is never far from my thoughts and never escapes my prayers. I’ll see you soon. — Walter
