Halloween 2017 brought another year of sweet smiles and fraternal joy as Sacred Heart Major Seminary opened its doors and welcomed neighbors for a night of trick-or-treating, games, and prayer.
Seminarians welcomed to our campus families from the neighborhood and around the city of Detroit, which included over 2,500 children, men, and women. Thousands of pounds of candy were distributed to guests, all of which were donated by members of the Sacred Heart community and parishioners from over thirty parishes in and around the Archdiocese of Detroit.
Second-year college seminarian for the Archdiocese of Detroit, James Bird, who organized the Halloween ministry this year, was grateful to God for how smooth the night went, due to the collegiality and charity of the entire community:
“Parishes were really generous. We reached out to them, and they gathered candy together as a parish, and then we went and picked it up,” said Bird. “We had a ton of candy. We filled a whole former bookstore with candy. It took almost two hours to move the candy from where we were to the gym.”
