After long deliberation, having consulted with the Seminary Rector and with the Society’s General Council, the Superior General of the Society, Fr Davide Pagliarani, has taken the difficult decision to close Holy Cross Seminary and to relocate its seminarians to other seminaries of the Society.  The essential reason for this decision is concern for the welfare of the seminarians themselves in view of the serious difficulties posed to seminary life when the number of seminarians is so small.  Therefore, at the end of this academic year, Holy Cross will become a priory of the District and will also serve as a pre-seminary to prepare Australians and New Zealanders for entering one of the Society’s overseas seminaries. Further details can be found in the official announcement from the Rector, Fr MacPherson.
