A Message From the Rector
Dear Friends of NDS:
We have begun our 92nd year of ministry in the Church with the orientation of our new seminarians – 40 new men with an overall enrollment of 126 men. We welcome two new faculty members as well as new staff in the kitchen and maintenance. God is good! We are mindful that God’s goodness comes to us in many ways and through many people. We are grateful to our bishops and vocation directors, parents of our seminarians, the many ministries, apostolates and organizations in the Church that support our mission.
We are well into the renovation project of Saint Joseph Hall. The project is expected to be completed in May 2016. The many benefactors who supported this project have given from their hearts to a project that assures the competent formation of future priests. This past Summer, our nation has experienced many social tensions which touch upon the very meaning of family, marriage, and human sexuality. We see racism, discrimination, poverty, and unemployment in our society which has harmed so many people. How we prepare future priests to bring the Gospel of Christ to these situations is the very reason Notre Dame Seminary exists.
Let us pray for our seminarians as they begin this new year and may the Lord bless all those who support these men and our beloved seminary, Notre Dame.
Father James A. Wehner, STD
