Kindergarten students at Mary, Mother of the Redeemer School in North Wales assembled care packages for seminarians at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood as the men prepare for final exams this spring.
Along with the “Snacks for Seminarians” the students also prepared a special spiritual bouquet for each seminarian.
This effort has particular significance for Mary, Mother of the Redeemer because many seminarians, deacons and newly ordained priests have served at the parish.
In addition, Matt Brody, a MMR parishioner, will be ordained a transitional deacon later this spring.
