All Hallows Seminary

On June 21, 1964, in All Hallows Seminary Chapel, Dublin, Ireland, I, and 38 other young men were ordained priests to serve overseas.

Since 1889, when the chapel was consecrated, several thousand men received the sacrament of Holy Orders in the same chapel. All Hallows Seminary and especially the chapel is a very special place for me.

The chapel is now in need of renovation, a project which will cost several million dollars. I have pledged my support of this project and I hope to be able to send some donations from our parish also. If you are able to make a contribution you will find special envelopes in the pews today. There will not be a second collection so envelopes should be placed in the regular collection today or next Sunday. Checks should be made out to St. Bernard Church.

Thank you.
