Passionist Staff and students

St. Ocar Romero House, the new student house, on the campus of King's College was blessed today by Most Reverend Neil Tiedemann, CP, DD, our own Passionist Bishop.  Should any of the candidates who attended the "Called By Name" program in Pittsburgh decide to join the Passionist Community, they will begin their formation training here.  They will remain here until they go the Novitiate in Citrus Heights, California.

Last week-end, the Province of St. Paul of the Cross, to which our Monastery belongs, sponsored a Vocation Week-end.  Twelve young men, who are considering the life of a Passionist priest or brother, met at our Monastery of St. Paul in Pittsburgh, PA.

A new Pre-Seminary has just been dedicated in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  Should any of these young men be accepted into the Passionist Community, they will reside there for their first year. 

They will then take First Vows and go to our Novitiate in California.  After a year of Novitiate they will attend Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, IL.  When they receive their Masters Degree, they will take Final Vows and those who are going on to the priesthood to be ordained.
