SJS Boston logo.jpgThe heart of a diocese is a seminary (or a seminary program if a diocese doesn't have a major seminary formation program). No would have guessed 10 years following the sex abuse crisis erupted in the Archdiocese of Boston, that Saint John's Seminary would see new life in forming men to be Catholic priests. Patrick Doyle wrote a very descent article for the Boston Magazine titled "Resurrection" on the uptick of the call to priesthood and good work of the Boston seminary.

Blessings on Se├ín Cardinal O'Malley, Msgr. Jim Moroney, and Father Eric Cadin, indeed on all of the Saint John's Seminary community! A true testimony to grace!
