WHERE HAVE OUR VOCATIONS GONE?

The projected closure of St. John’s Seminary, Wonersh, is heart breaking for so many of us priests in the south of England.  Wonersh is our Alma Mater.  Seminaries are our future. This news has come in the wake of the projected demise of Downside Abbey where my uncle was Ordained. The Monasteries are our hidden strength!  How much more decline must we face? As the Emeritus Bishop of Portsmouth once quipped, ‘At this rate we will be extinct by 2030!’
