News from the seminaries
This September, 19 new seminarians have begun their formation and academic programme (2017-2018) for Irish dioceses. Earlier this year, the Congregation for Clergy – who have overall responsibility for seminary formation – issued a new document (Ratio), The Gift of the Priestly Vocation, which is the revised programme for seminary formation. The Ratio strongly recommends to bishops around the world the introduction of a pre-seminary (propaedeutic) year for new candidates who wish to discern their priestly vocation.
The 19 new seminarians are currently in formation are in Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth (6), the Pontifical Irish College, Rome (2), Saint Malachy’s, Belfast (1), the Pontifical Beda College, Rome (2) and eight have begun the propaedeutic year in locations in Ireland and abroad.
