Irish seminary to separate students from university community
CWN - January 11, 2012
Students at the Irish national seminary at Maynooth will be separated from other students on the sprawling campus, in a move to preserve the distinctive quality of the seminary as a training ground for clerics, the Irish Catholic reports.
The seminary shares its grounds with the Pontifical University and the National University of Ireland. Officials are planning changes to create a more reflective atmosphere and a sense of community for young men discerning a vocation to the priesthood.
The changes are under discussion following an apostolic visitation which reportedly called for more rigorous formation of Ireland's priests.
