Some great news from the Pontifical North American College in Rome. A few days ago, they welcomed their largest first year in 40 years, welcoming 61 new seminarians. These have arrived for a few weeks of orientation, and intensive Italian classes before the academic term begins. When the rest of the seminarians return, the NAC will have 208 seminarians. The college was built to house this number but in recent years some rooms have been turned over for other uses. Staff member Mgr Robert Gruss said "These rooms have been reclaimed."
