Blanchet Welcomes Seminarians

October 28, 2020
By Toni Nanneman

Blanchet Catholic School is blessed to partner with Mt. Angel Abbey as part of their Pastoral Formation Field Education program.  For the last 6 years, Mt. Angel Abbey has sent two seminarian students to participate in Blanchets' Christian service learning efforts during the school year.  The seminarians interact with the religion classes, retreats, and service opportunities. The Field Education experience provides the ideal opportunity for seminarians to grow in pastoral charity and to serve as a bridge for youth to connect with their faith.  Whether in religion classes, at retreats, or community events, the seminarians help provide a spiritual, human, and academic dimension to faith and spirituality at Blanchet.

This year, our seminarians include Richard Ordos and Scott Borba.  With our digital learning protocols in place, the seminarians participate by joining Zoom classes, virtually attending retreat planning sessions, and giving theological insight for classroom lessons.  

The staff and students enjoy working with these gentlemen, and we would like to introduce them to the Blanchet community.  Please keep them in your prayers and welcome them to Blanchet Catholic School.
