the NAC seminary in Rome

Tonight, after dinner, we had a presentation about The Pontifical North American College seminary in Rome.  A priest (formation leader) from Rome showed a great video and answered questions about “the NAC.”  When Bishops in the US see potential charism in mature seminarians & priests, they occasionally send them to continue their formation in Rome, usually studying in specific programs that Bishops see a need for in their diocese.

As a new Pre-Theology seminarian here in little old St John Vianney College minor seminary in Miami, Florida, it was all new to me and very interesting.  For the first 2 years, you don’t leave Rome.  Many of the classes are in Italian.  It sounds like a great opportunity and gift to be chosen, but is a big change and quite intimidating.  That’s probably why they select men who are mature and fairly sure of their priestly vocation for such a big step.  Their website is @ pnac.org.

Gregorian University in ROmeCoincidently, a few days ago, I found a blog of Ted Martin, a seminarian of Kalamazoo, Michigan that is currently in his first year of theological studies at the Gregorian University living at the NAC in Rome.  He’s got some great pictures of his experience in the Vatican.  His blog is @ theodoremartin.blogspot.com  — I’ll definitely check it out every now and then.
