Greetings from Leuven, Belgium


As noted previously, I am spending this week in Europe. Fr. Sean O'Connell, associate pastor of St. Dominic's in Brookfield and CMH Football Team Chaplain, Fr. Erich Weiss, associate pastor of St. Jerome's in Oconomowoc (who will be working with the hockey team this winter, Fr. Sean's sister Shannon and I, have traveled to Leuven, Belgium.

The Catholic University here holds claim to being the oldest, continually operated Catholic University in the world. The bishops of the United States founded a seminary here in 1857. The American College of the Immaculate Conception continues to serve the American and universal church with its formation and preparation of future priests.
