And the topic couldn't be more different.
|Brett Metzler, future priest|
The story is the most shared on our station website with 6,000 likes so far.
And yesterday I received an email from a Mrs. Judith Verrier in the archdiocese of Washington, confirming the same thing is happening there:
Dear Ms. Kornet,
Thank you sincerely for your recent article on seminarians and the priesthood, which casts a positive light on all that is good about the Catholic priesthood. I can attest that the topic of your story is true: there are currently 25 men studying at this seminary for our archdiocese (there are a total of 74 seminarians which includes our seminary, and 3 others in our archdiocese). Our seminary is currently under construction – we’re building 2 more floors to accommodate 20 more seminarians!
What a rare thing to see in this day and age! And what a rare opportunity--afforded me by my television station--to fly to New Orleans and tell Brett Metzler's story.
