Another rather fond moment I had with some Camden Seminarians was on the drive to and from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. All six of us, from Saint Andrew’s College Seminary, drove down to D.C. together. Again, nothing out of the ordinary happened, but just being able to spend this time with my brothers was a memorable moment. I remember after Nickolas Natticchione (a.k.a Nick from Holy Spirit) dropped us off at OLOPP, I thanked God for being able to spend that time with them.
If I look back on my four years in the seminary, the highlights which stick out to me most are the times spent in fraternity with my brother seminarians. For those who are discerning a call to the priesthood, in the diocese of Camden, this is what you also can experience. The life of a seminarian can be quite difficult at times, and it can be quite demanding, as well. Yet, in the midst of those times, there is always a Camden seminarian there to lift you up; to walk with you through those times. “Amen, I say to you” at the center of our Camden fraternity is a charity which never dies, and that never burns out. “Come and See” (John 1: 39). Experience this fraternity; this brotherhood for yourselves.
