After visiting St. Peter Cathedral and the Chaldean Media Center, Cardinal Leonardo Sandri was taken to see the Chaldean Seminary and Convents. His tour began with a visit to the convent of the Chaldean Sisters, Daughters of Mary Immaculate Conception. After spending a few moments in prayer in their beautiful chapel, His Emminence was then taken to visit the Convent of Our Lady of the Fields, where the Diocesan Sisters of the Workers of the Vineyard welcomed the Cardinal with a hymn to Our Lady. Afterward, Cardinal Sandri took the short walk next door to the Seminary of Mar Abba the Great.
The Cardinal prayed with the Seminarians in their Chapel before leaving for St. Michael’s Church where he met with the clergy. His visit ended with a tour of the Bishopric. Though his visit was very short, the clergy and faithful of St. Peter Diocese were honored by the visit of His Eminence, Cardinal Leonardo Sandri.
