Our Patron Saint ~ Junipero Serra

Not only because of his place in American history as the founder of a chain of missions in Mexico and California, but also because of his life of priestly zeal and heroic virtue, Fray Junípero Serra, OFM, was chosen as the patron of our apostolate. This gifted Franciscan friar had occupied the Duns Scotus chair of philosophy in Mallorca, Spain, until he felt the call to commit himself further to the service of Christ as a missionary in the New World. Departing from Cadiz, Spain, in 1748, he made the perilous crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in a small ship, landing at Veracruz on the southern shore of the Gulf of Mexico. From there, he journeyed on foot to Mexico City, where tradition has it that he prayed at the church built over the famous site where the Virgin of Guadalupe appeared to St. Juan Diego in 1531.

Today's #SeniorFeature! Meet Kyle Wozniak, senior from the Archdiocese of Omaha 🎓🎓🎓

Biggest Change Since SJV | I've seen a tremendous deepening of my understanding and practice of the spiritual life at SJV. I was all-in on my faith before seminary, but even so, I had nowhere near the breadth and depth of knowledge and trust in the Lord that He has given to me while here. I have come not only to know about Jesus, but know Him in Himself, and the Father through Him.

Favorite Part of SJV | The silent retreats we attend before each semester. They have been a time of rest with the Lord in which He has blessed me with graces of affirmation, healing, growth, clarity, and peace. If I had to choose anything else, it would be the deep fraternity I've experienced, especially through frisbee, movie-nights, and Frassati's Root Beer Bar on my own 5th floor.

Most Important Lesson Learned at SJV | To trust in the Father's love for me with recourse to the sacraments and daily prayer, and how to pray relationally with Him in the confidence of His affirming gaze.

How Has SJV Prepared You | By showing me the heart of the Father, giving me a model for my own future fatherhood.

Best Part of Summer | The opportunity to spend time with my family and enter into various summer assignments given by my vocations director - from working at a Catholic cemetery in my hometown to teaching youth as a Totus Tuus missionary.

Please pray for Kyle and all of our seniors preparing for graduation this spring! #SJVCollegeSeminary #MenInChrist #MenOfTheChurch #MenForOthers
