This past weekend, current seminarians, Transitional Deacons, and members of the faculty and administration of Immaculate Conception Seminary, the major seminary for the Archdiocese of Newark, welcomed 16 new seminarians. Joined by men from other dioceses, Newark is blessed to welcome five new seminarians entering the major seminary - four are studying at ICS and one will be studying at the Pontifical North American College in Rome. Please view some of the pictures below, courtesy of Immaculate Conception Seminary.
The new men will gather during the upcoming week for prayer, Mass, workshops, and orientation programs before welcoming back the returning seminarians and embarking on a week-long retreat prior to the start of the Fall Academic semester.
Please pray for all of our seminarians as they begin a year of study, formation, and discernment.
