Today is the Feast of Saint Dominic, the founder of the Dominicans, an Order of Preachers. As many of you know Michael Bovino recently joined the Diocese of Norwich and is heading off in another week or so to Mount Saint Mary Seminary to begin his pre-theology years of study. A good friend of his and also a UCONN graduate two years ago, today receives his Dominican habit as he recently began in first year of novitiate study and prayer with the Eastern Province of the Dominicans, located out in Ohio. Congratulations Jacob Ramos.
Last night at the Norwich Diocesan Catholic Foundation Dinner the Seminarian program of the Diocese received two grants; one from the Fr. Robert Talmadge Endowment Fund for $403.00 and one from The Curtin seminarian Scholarship Fund for $33,444, bringing the total of the two grants to $33,847.00. Please keep the souls of these faithful and generous people in your prayers and keep in mind the opportunity to also support the Norwich Diocesan Seminarian program in this way.
