I'm in Chicago for a few days thanks to the generosity of the J.S. Paluch Company. Each year for the past twenty-six years, J.S. Paluch has sponsored a national seminary for some 70 leaders in priestly and religious formation, providing a forum for continued collaboration between the National Conference of Diocesan Vocations Directors (NCDVD) and the National Religious Vocation Conference (NRVC). You can see some of the participants at the dinner this evening in the picture below.
The day began with a meeting of the Executive Committee of the NCEA Seminary Division to which I was recently elected. All kinds of wonderful ideas in Chicago these days on vocations and seminary formation!
