Back from retreat

Sorry for the long silence: I was away Friday night through Sunday morning at the Immaculate Conception Seminary in Huntington, NY, on retreat with deacons from the Dioceses of Brooklyn and Rockville Centre, and the Archdiocese of New York.

It’s a beautiful place—still blanketed in snow, despite the warming weather—and a good time was had by all. The retreat was given by Msgr. Richard Henning, the facility’s rector, who spoke compellingly of how “Scripture Speaks to the Heart.”

Some snapshots below.

Crypt chapel, with several side altars (behind the grails) for private celebration of Mass. 

I just loved the idea that our conferences for ongoing formation were held in a large hall adjoining the maintenance room.

Located in the seminary basement, these have to be the last known wooden phone booths on Long Island—or maybe all of New York.

I’m in there, 5th guy from the right.
