Not yet fully narians, three Seton alumni studying at three different seminaries visited Seton classes shortly before Christmas vacation.
Chris Cooper is studying at St. Charles Borromeo in Philadelphia, where Archbishop Chaput now also resides; Sean Koehr is studying at Mount St. Mary’s in Emmitsburg, Maryland; and James Majewski is at the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio.
These three are among the five Seton graduates now studying for the Diocese of Arlington. That tops all schools for the Diocese. The other two are Deacon Michael Isenberg and Colin Davis.
And these five are part of the eight Seton grads in seminary. The other three are Zach Akers, Rene Zambrana, and Chris Kepler. Zach is in Nebraska and will be ordained a deacon this spring; Rene is in Spain and Chris in California at a Jesuit seminary.
The three who visited Seton gave a lively and enthusiastic report of their studies, singing and work at their seminaries.
Three Seton grads are priests: Father Peter, a Dominican. The most recent news I have on Father Peter is that he visited the Cloistered Dominican Sisters in Buffalo, NY, for the Easter Triduum. Seton grad Sister Diana Marie (Amanda Shaw) reports that Father Peter (Joe Fegan) is doing well and sings the Exsultet beautifully. Father Pat Beno is in Wisconsin and Father Tom Vander Woude is pastor at Holy Trinity in Gainesville.
