The Easter Octave is a time for community building - extra time together doing those things that rejuvenate us as individuals and as a "family" unit. This did not prevent us from sharing the joy of the season with those outside of the community. Two members of the community traveled to Mundelein Seminary to participate in the Institute on Religious Life's annual conference. The theme of this year's conference was "Religious Life, Ever Ancient, Ever Beautiful..." In recognition of his staunch fidelity to the faith and his acheivements in publishing and education, Fr. Joseph Fessio received this year's Pro Fidelitate et Virtute Award.
