Seminaries Need to Employ New Cooks?
The National Office of Vocations recently sent out a press release pointing out that England and Wales has enjoyed an annual increase in the number of men entering seminary for the last four years. Last year forty four men began training at one of our diocesan seminaries. We've just had the Selection Conference at Wonersh which was attended by twelve potential new candidates. They all seemed good men and there was a very good spirit among them.
It would be great if they were all to be accepted. But the increasing numbers of seminarians bring with it other questions of a more mundane nature. If any rectors out there are wondering if they should employ a new cook, I recommend getting in contact with the chap in the photograph Manuel Mucho Comida. He's a dab hand at rustling up a quick paella. This one's for five hundred!
