Diocesan seminarians at St. John Fisher Seminary gathered recently with their families and friends of the seminary to host their Annual Christmas Concert, with the assistance of the Serra Club of the Diocese of Bridgeport.
With the help of Thomas Marino and David Harvey, the seminarians led the congregation of about 150 people through song, preparing for the coming of the Lord at Christmas in this yearly tradition. Beginning with “Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending,” the seminarians reminded all present of the Lord’s advent “In the Bleak Midwinter.” In order to honor Our Lady, the Mother of Christ, “Ave Maria” and “Maria Walks Amid the Thorns” were performed as well. A light reception followed the concert, during which the seminarians, their families, and other friends were able to celebrate the Advent season together.
Twenty-five seminarians are preparing for the priesthood in the Diocese of Bridgeport. St. John Fisher Seminary is located on Newfield Avenue in Stamford. For information on discerning a vocation, visit: http://www.bridgeportpriest.org
