Hoffman Days!

From Fr. Kevin Moroney, Professor of Liturgics:

In case you were wondering…

The Guild of Chimers of the Chapel of the Good Shepherd is responsible for playing the Seminary’s historic chimes. The tower contains a set of 15 tubular chimes, manufactured in 1922 by the Walter H. Durfee Company of Providence, Rhode Island. The chimes are rung mechanically each morning and evening, where they are heard throughout the neighborhood of Chelsea, calling the Seminary community together for our corporate worship.  Read more...

Since before his arrival, Dean DeLashmutt has been working with the creative team at Percepti.co to develop the structure of a new site. We are at the stage in development where we need to acquire photo and video content.

To help with this, throughout next week a small team of photographers and videographers will join us on the Close to film interviews with faculty, staff and students and capture pictures throughout the campus (classrooms, chapel, library, refectory, etc.).  Read more...
