In order to continue strengthening the ties between all those who were students of Mariannhill, on October 7th, 2017, a new meeting was held in Lagunilla [Salamanca].
The aforementioned meeting began at noon on that first and hot Saturday of October in the Hermitage of the village, where a prayer was said for the deceased former students, especially those who had left us in the last year, a prayer that included the Mariannhill missionaries who passed through that seminary and who have already died, as well as its former teachers.
Then, after taking a walk through the streets of the village and through a large park full of oaks and chestnut trees, we went to what is known as the “Balcony of Extremadura”, from where one can see and admire a vast valley, dotted with various villages and olive trees.
After enjoying a superb meal in one of the local restaurants, we visited the original village of Granadilla [Cáceres], now rehabilitated after being abandoned for the construction of the wetlands named “Gabriel and Galán”.
We ended this fraternal and peaceful meeting by taking a walk through the town of Hervás [Cáceres], while we talked about the memories of the years spent together at the Seminary of Mariannhill in Palencia and drew up plans for the next meeting.
