Since the year 2000, 120 men have been ordained to the priesthood from Assumption. These men are spread out in dioceses all over Texas and far beyond. All of my colleagues on the formation faculty are happy for them. These newly-ordained men have worked hard in order to be well-prepared for the ministerial priesthood. They are just beginning.
Assumption has a fine formation faculty, and we are happy to serve San Antonio and several other dioceses that have chosen us over the years for the religious and cultural experience we offer here. This year we have 85 men from thirteen dioceses in different programs ranging from college philosophy to graduate theology.
We ask Our Lady, Assumed into heaven, to pray that every man who has answered the call to be in seminary grow into the image of her Son, Christ the Good Shepherd.
