young priests!

Jun 11, 2012

Two years ago I arrived at Mundelein University in Chicago for a six week study stint as part of a sabbatical.  I am now back for further study in the Master’s Degree programme at the Liturgical Institute.

The student group for this programme numbers around 30.  A diverse bunch; young people with families, religious sisters and priests.  Among the priests I suspect I am one of the oldest.  

I recall that when I arrived here in 2010 I had come from the celebrations to mark the close of the Year of the Priest in Rome.  I looked back at my first blog entry from Mundelein at that time.  It was very positive: the world is full of young priests!
