Capstones: Matthew Olsen and Grant Boggs

Yesterday two fourth-year college students at Mount Angel Seminary presented their capstone projects.

Matthew Olsen presented his project in the Store at the Press, the location of the seminary bookstore and coffee shop.  His project focused on the experience of art and on several of his own paintings.  Mr. Mark Woolman served at the director for his project.

Later in the afternoon Grant Boggs shared his capstone on Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity.  He discussed the life of Mother Teresa, the charism of her order, contemplation in action, and the spiritual darkness that she experienced for much of her life.

Ms. Kathy Akiyama served as the director for Grant's project, and Father Rory Pitstick and Father Aelred Yockey served as his readers.
