The Cathedral has been blessed in recent years to be the temporary home of seminarians (those training for the priesthood), who come for a few weeks to gain a little experience of parish life. Earlier in the summer we welcomed Matt Tomlinson, a seminarian from our own diocese, and over the last few weeks Bill Brunner (pictured), who studies at the North American College in Rome, has been with us. Bill is from the Diocese of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and has a further three years of study before he is ordained to the priesthood. He leaves us today after a month in the parish, during which time he has contributed in many ways to the life of the Cathedral. We wish him well and promise to remember him and all seminarians in our prayers.
