Card. Wuerl Dedicates Blessed John Paul II Sem.; Seminarians Study Pre-Theology Courses at CUA

The National Catholic Register website reports today (October 25, 2011) that Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C. dedicated the Blessed John Paul II Seminary on October 22 -- the feast day of the Pope who died in 2005.

Witnesses at the intimate dedication ceremony included two previous Washington archbishops and the 20 seminarians now in residence in the simple, home-like facility, which can accommodate about 30 men.

The seminarians will complete pre-theology studies at the nearby Catholic University of America (CUA).

John Garvey, president of CUA, was among those in attendance at the dedication ceremony.
