MAS Seminarians Celebrate the Memorial of the Korean Martyrs

by Phillip J. Shifflet

Saturday, September 20, was the memorial of Saint Andrew Kim Tae-gon, Priest, and Paul Chong Ha-sang and Companions, Martyrs.

The Korean community at Mount Angel Seminary gathered for Mass in the St. Anselm Chapel at 11 a.m. in commemoration of the Korean martyrs.  Later that day, they cooked a traditional Korean meal in celebration.

Abbot Peter Eberle, OSB, was the celebrant for the 11 a.m. Mass in St. Anselm Chapel.  His homily included a brief history of the Korean martyrs.

Before dinner, the seminarians enjoyed a Korean green tea.

Dinner included marinated barbecued beef and barbecued pork belly.

The meal also consisted of a fried rice that was made with kimchi,
seaweed, and fried egg.
