“Saint Charles Seminary is pleased to offer a unique opportunity for guests to walk in the footsteps of Pope Francis while also enjoying a beautiful evening of music and song under the direction of our new director of sacred music Rudolph Lucente.” said Bishop Timothy C. Senior, Rector of Saint Charles Seminary.
Concert proceeds will benefit the Seminary’s program of priestly formation and all are welcome to attend. Tickets are on sale for $75.00 per person and can be purchased by visiting the Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary website, www.scs.edu/mmfconcert.
All funds raised will support the Seminary’s Spirituality Year Program. This portion of the Seminary’s priestly formation program ordinarily follows a seminarian’s college graduation. It offers intensive spiritual preparation and direction for the development of a rich internal life of prayer.
