Fr John Fullerton, District Superior of Australia and New Zealand, preached the opening Ignatian retreat for the new seminarians and the returning spirituality seminarians, at Holy Cross, from 10-16 March.
The retreat included seven seminarians entering into the Humanities year: 2 Australians, 1 New Zealander, 1 Filipino, and last but not the least, the two first Chinese seminarians for the SSPX. It also included two brother postulants, one from Nigeria and one from South Africa. After a brief visa delay, a South Korean Humanities seminarian arrived on 16 March.
The following nationalities now make up the student body at Holy Cross (comprised of 24 members!):
5 South Koreans
3 New Zealanders
Please pray for the perseverance of all of these promising vocations.
In addition to the seminarians, novice and brother postulant, the Seminary community includes 5 priest professors, and 4 religious brothers.
