The Seminary Society of St. Margaret Mary's (Oakland, CA) just had it's 2nd Annual Picnic held today, Saturday (July 25, 2009) from 11AM to 4PM at the lovely Cull Canyon Park (Castro Valley, CA). The Seminary Society was established as a means of providing material and spiritual support to the seminarians of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. The international seminary (St. Phillip Neri Seminary) is located in Gricigliano, Italy. What has become an annual picnic, is also becoming to be an annual advance birthday party for Abbe Joel Estrada, who's now an upcoming 3rd Year seminarian. Abbe Joel was a parishioner of St. Margaret Mary, prior to entering the seminary. During the summer months, the Institute sends off many of its seminarians (including Abbe Joel) to help in its various apostolates around the world.
