Gellert LibraryThe Gellert Library was delighted to receive a beautiful  coffee table book honoring the 50th Golden Jubilee of St Patrick’s graduate, Monsignor Brigido “Bibi”  Pedro Untalan Arroyo, the pastor of one of the largest and busiest parishes of the Archdiocese of Agana, Guam—St. Anthony-St Victor Church in Tamuning.



A new painting of the founder of the Sulpicians, Fr. Jean Jacques Olier (1608-1657) has been created by Sulpician Father Peter Gray in Maryland. The painting has been acquired by St. Patrick's Seminary and will go on display in the main administrative hallway of the Seminary. The painting came into the possession of St. Patrick's just recently and will be on display in time for the October canonical visitation of the Superior General of the Society of St. Sulpice (The Very Reverend Ronald D. Witherup, p.s.s.) Fr. Witherup will meet with the President/Rector as well as with the members of the administration, student body and Oblate Sisters of Jesus the Priest. The "canonical visitation" is a routine visitation of the seminary either by the Provincial or the Superior General of the Sulpicians at regularly scheduled intervals in an effort to assist the Sulpician Seminary in its ministry of initial and ongoing formation of Preists for service in the dioceses.

He died on Saturday at the age of forty as the result of a heart attack while exercising in the seminary gym.
