The Grade seminars are part of the larger Grade program that offers weekly study nights as well throughout the year at Westcott Study Center. Freshman & Sophomore Grade Seminars and Study Nights meet on Tuesdays, and Junior & Senior Grade Seminars and Study Nights meet on Wednesdays. While signing up for the program does not require students to attend every seminar or study night, the cost of the registration includes the entire program, and the more often students are able to attend the various activities, the more they will benefit! Although The Grade seminars do not begin until September, our first study night is Tuesday, August 24th for Freshmen and Sophomores, and Wednesday, August 25th for Juniors and Seniors.
Starting in November the recollections in the Houston area will return to in-person-only. Everyone should exercise prudence deciding whether he can attend, taking into account his personal a family circumstances. Those unable to attend a recollection are encouraged to use the "Recollection-Kits" available on the Opus Dei website at their convenience: https://opusdei.org/en-us/category/christian-life/fostering-interior-life. Since there has not been much social interaction during the recollections in the last few months for those attending online, the "Recollection-Kits" seem like a perfect replacement, with the advantage they can be used at the most convenient time. We would be thankful of any feed-back you may have about them.
