A Message From the Rector
Feast of the Epiphany
Dear Friends in Christ:
Welcome to Notre Dame Seminary and best wishes to you in this New Year. The seminary community prays that 2015 will be a year of peace and joy for all who support us and priestly vocations.
We are off to a busy start. We presently have our 4th year seminarians in the Holy Land for the annual pilgrimage. All the seminarians will be on retreat before the academic year begins. Then, we resume studies, prayer, and formation.
We will host our first Chancellor’s Dinner recognizing benefactors and friends who support the mission of NDS. The seminarians will compete in the annual basketball tournament at the Josephinum where I once served as rector. They will also complete in the third annual Causeway Cup Soccer Tournament against our sister seminary, Saint Ben’s. The culmination of the semester will be ordination of deacons and priests.
We pray that 2015 will also be a good year for you. Let us continue to pray for our Holy Father, for an increase in priestly vocations, and for the successful ministry of priestly formation. On behalf of the entire seminary community – Blessed New Year.
Father James A. Wehner
