US bishops to close their seminary in Louvain
Catholic World News - November 23, 2010
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has announced its decision to close the American College of Louvain, a seminary founded in 1857 to prepare Europeans for missionary work in the United States and to offer American seminarians “the philosophical and theological riches available at Europe’s oldest Catholic university” in Louvain (Leuven), Belgium. The bishops’ conference cited “the small number of seminarians and available priest faculty” as reasons for its decision.
