Dear friends of St. Lawrence Seminary,
I am pleased to present our plan to reopen St. Lawrence Seminary in the school year 2020-2021. It is the fruit of dedicated, thoughtful, and prayerful engagement by the members of our task force.
Please take some time to read our full report:
Back on the Hill: A Plan to Reopen SLS 2020-21 (pdf)
This plan hearkens to our core value of creating a safe community for everyone. It is that spirit that guides our steps, as well as the recognition that we have a unique environment and resources at our disposal here at St. Lawrence Seminary to manage our students’ return, to conduct in-person classroom instruction, and to implement other activities on campus safely.
This plan carefully considers the guidelines and recommendations on mitigating the risk of COVID-19 by the federal, state, and county health agencies. We will remain vigilant on their latest updates and will adjust our plan accordingly. Be assured of our commitment to communicate with you any changes to our existing plan, and above all, to continue to make St. Lawrence Seminary a safe community for everyone. I ask for your patience, cooperation, and prayers as we move forward.
May the Lord bless our endeavors and keep us all safe in his loving care.
Fr. Zoy Garibay, OFM Cap.
