Year for Priests Presentation

I just stumbled on a most beautiful presentation in the Year for Priests.  It is on the website of the Order of Canon's Regular of the Holy Cross - the order for the priests who help out at Assumption Grotto and some other metro Detroit parishes.  Some of the priests known to us are down at the Institute teaching so you will enjoy seeing the pictures.   Bishop Athanasius Schneider, ORC, who recently spoke at the Call to Holiness, is a graduate.

The Institutum Sapientiae (Institute of Wisdom) is an institute of higher learning in philosophy and theology under the direction of the Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross in Anápolis, Brazil. According to its statutes, which were definitively approved by the Vatican Congregation for Catholic Institutes on November 16, 2007, the Institute is specifically for the formation of candidates for the priesthood. It can also offer formation for members of religious institutes in classes separate from those given to the seminarians.

The Institute has been forming priests for the Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross, the diocese of Anápolis as well as other religious communities and dioceses of Brazil since 1984 (see attachment 1). Priests who have received formation in the Institute are now serving the Church in countries all over the world, including the United States, Mexico, Columbia, India, the Philippines, Germany, Italy and Austria
Go view the presentation in this Year for Priests and pass the link along!
