At last night's vespers, Fr. Marc P. Valadão, SJ blessed and distributed pyxes to the seminarians in preparation for their upcoming Pastoral Year assignments in the Fall. A pyx is a small container that is used to carry a consecrated host. It is often used to transport the Eucharist to those who cannot attend Mass, such as the infirmed. It is a fitting object to be given to the men as they embark on their Pastoral Year assignments.
