Welcome New Faculty

Welcome Visitors

  We welcome our visitors, especially Bishops and Vocation Directors, to the Seminary.  During the few days of their visit, they join the community for Mass and daily prayers.  While here Vocations Directors meet with students studying for their own dioceses and also meet with other members of the community as well as staff and faculty members.
