Miami seminary

St John Vianney Seminary videoI was looking on the Archdiocese of Miami website for a video of catholic military chaplains that is no longer on their video page (–I downloaded it last year).  There is, however, a great little video about St. John Vianney Seminary in Miami (which I’m starting next month) called “A Call to Faith” (DSL or dialup).

Father Michael CarruthersWhile I continued searching the website, I found a great article from last year called, “The people of God deserve the best.”  It’s an interview with Father Michael Carruthers, the new rector of St. John Vianney Seminary.  He spoke about the quality and “wholesomeness” of the young men who are entering the seminary today.  I found a profile on him as well as 24 other priests on another page called Building the City of God.”  Besides hearing some great homilies last November @ the “Seminary Vocation Weekend,” I personally met with Father Carruthers (as part of the application process) and was very impressed by his sincerity, encouragement and attentive ear.  — he’s definitely someone I look forward to grow with.
