Students at USS Constitution

We have photos to share from yesterday’s trip to Boston!

The adventure began with a two-hour bus ride that began on campus and ended at the Boston Common. Once there, the students split into small groups led by prefects, each of which explored different parts of the city.

In the Commons, students admired the Make Way for Ducklings statues and swan boats; visited the graves of John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and Paul Revere in the Granary Burying Ground; and walked up Beacon Hill to the Massachusetts State House. Some groups followed the Freedom Trail, visited King’s Chapel, and lunched in Quincy Market or Boston’s Italian North End. Those with a nautical bent checked out the USS Constitution, a storied 18th century frigate, or the USS Cassin Young, a World War II–era destroyer.

Late in the afternoon the students re-grouped and made their way back to campus for open-mc night, which consisted of story-telling, musical performances, and a raucous-sing-along! Below are photos …

… and some video:

The night concluded with a brief bonfire, then curfew and consecration. This morning the day began with Mass, both in the extraordinary (7:15 a.m.) and ordinary forms (9:00 a.m.). Then came a morning dance class …

…followed a trip to Northfield’s beloved ice-cream shop, the Creamie, and a two-hour “siesta.” The big event later today will be a family-style barbeque, held at the home of tutor Dr. Patrick Gardner and his family. Check back tomorrow for photos!
