The Rural Life Club sponsored an annual field trip
to the Amana Colonies in the fall. All seminarians are
members of the Catholic Interracial Council and many
actively participate in its programs.
Communications is the basis for community life and
apostolic effectiveness and the daily life of a seminarian is crowded with personal interchange encouraging
the development of genuine Christian friendships. They
eat their meals in a common refectory, share the duties
of communal living, participate in college intramural ath-
letics, study together in their library, watch televisioin
in the lounge and conduct "popcorn and Pepsi" discussions in their rooms. These activities help to build the
fraternal and apostolic spirit vital to the community
of life in the seminary.
This bulletin board prepared by seminarian student teachers
helps to explain the liturgical year.
