Connection or Communion?
Friday’s talk was delivered by André Escaleira, a seminarian for the Diocese of Bridgeport born and raised in the great city of Bridgeport! He’s a proud graduate of Kolbe Cathedral High School and Fairfield University. He’s getting ready to move on to major seminary at St. Joseph’s Seminary, Dunwoodie in Yonkers, NY! Some of his heroes in Heaven include Sts. Maximilian Kolbe, Joseph, and Teresa of Calcutta. His favorite passage in Scripture is from Wisdom 11:24-26, where we hear of God’s incredible, sustaining love for us.
With the title: “Connection or Communion?”, André addressed the issue of loneliness so common among the youth. He challenged participant to never settle for mere connection, but to always seek authentic communion.
