The 24th Annual Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary Golf Tournament is scheduled for Monday, May 23rd, at The Weston Golf Club. This premier charity event is held to benefit the educational program for the seminarians. Tuition covers only half the cost of educating a seminarian and the proceeds from this tournament will help bridge the gap and keep the cost of educating them affordable.

On Wednesday, April 27th, the seminary welcomed over 225 guests to witness the dedication of our new Learning Center presided by Cardinal Seán O’Malley.  Guests included various donors, alumni, faculty, and the PSJS Board of Trustees.  The visitors, some of whom travelled from as far away as Texas and New Mexico to attend the dedication, gathered throughout both the Mary and Jack Shaughnessy and Rev. Charles J. Healey, S.J. Pavilions in a spirit of joy and fraternity.   As our Rector, Rev.

On Tuesday, April 12th, six seminarians took the solemn Oath of Fidelity and made Profession of Catholic Faith which was presided over by Pope St. John XXIII Rector, the Very Rev. William B. Palardy.

The faithful who are called to exercise an office in the name of the church are required to make the profession of faith according to this formula approved by the Apostolic See.  The ceremony is a necessary step prior to ordination to the Transitional Diaconate, as it documents the seminarian's willingness to uphold the teachings of the Catholic Church in the ministry he exercises.

The Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary Community held our annual Tenebrae Service in the Alumni Chapel on the evening of March 20th.

The mood was somber, quiet and reflective with a focus on Jesus' death and burial in the tomb. The distinctive feature of the service was the gradual extinction of all the lights in the chapel until only one candle, considered a symbol of our Lord, the inextinguishable and perpetual light of the world, remained and by its light all the members of our community departed in silence.

Father John Dinh Pham and fifteen parishioners from the Vietnamese community of St. Bernadette's in Randolph, MA celebrated the Mass with the seminary on Monday. The choir wore traditional long dresses and the conductor played the keyboards with a pronounced flute overtone. The liturgy was celebrated in Vietnamese and the cadence and musicality of the language made for a beautiful Mass. Bishop John Brungardt, of Dodge City, KS, Father Palardy, Rector and seven priests con-celebrated the Mass.
