CWN Editor's Note: “One change is how a seminarian’s progress to ordination is tracked,” the report notes. “What had been a seminary college or ‘pre-theology’ followed by graduate studies — known as the theologate — is being replaced by new terms: the ‘propaedeutic stage’ with preparatory and introductory teaching lasting one to two years, and a ‘discipleship stage,’ which is to last at least two years.”
