Return to Seminary

Dear readers,

recently our new brothers were welcomed to our seminary. It was an exciting day for all, the existing students were waiting anxiously to meet the new men, and I can recall from my own first day, the new comers were nervous and excited to begin their new life in the seminary, their first formal steps towards priesthood.

I must say, the new men are most welcome, and, I hope, they feel that welcome. Recalling my first few weeks, I was touched by the welcome extended to us.

Now we are complete, and awaiting the beginning of the academic year. Please pray for all the students starting at seminaries around this time, across the country. Please pray also for existing students, progressing patiently towards the altar of the Lord.

Will do. God bless you all for answering the call. My Saturday rosary is said for all seminarians.

Thank you to both of you, and all those who pray for seminarians.

It is a generous act, which helps towards the new evangelisation.
