Wow!  We all made it to the seminary in Maynooth yesterday after a whirlwind of travel and only a little bit of confusion.  After picking up the cars and learning how to drive again we all made our way to the seminary.  The combination of driving on the other side of the road and being in a foreign country proved to be a challenge for some of us on our way to the seminary but in the end we all made it to our destination safe and sound.  After some prayer and dinner most guys went to bed.
Today we started with our first class.  It was about the history of the Church in Ireland, starting right around the time of St. Patrick.  We learned a lot about the history of the Church here.  Later in the afternoon we recieved a tour of the campus and we got to see one of there chapels that they use on special occasions, it was truly beautiful.
We are so thankful for the warm welcome we have received and for the seminarians who have really made an effort to get to know us and hang out with us even thought they are in the midst of their exams.  Already I am filled with gratitude for this awesome opportunity to study here in Ireland!--AZ
