New "apostles" bring varied gifts to life at the seminary

I knew this would happen--now that our diocese is no longer in the hands of dissenters, as it was for 20 years, the seminary is attracting vocations. I understand the woman gatekeeper who would keep out orthodox candidates was recently replaced. These 12 will need all the prayers they can get, as the seminary and diocese are still not totally cleansed.

"The “12 apostles” are the largest incoming class in the past 10 years, said Father Coogan. The seminarians will follow a five-year program which includes four years of study and one year working in a parish setting."

Update: 10 of the 12 are seminarians for the Diocese of Rockville Centre
