Men becoming priests at mid-life

Bob Holliday reported in the Bloomington Daily Pantagraph on the priesthood as second career.
Paul Sullins, a professor at the Catholic University of America, said the average age at ordination has risen by 10 to 15 years since the 1970s — part of a national trend toward increased education and later-life commitments.

Sacred Hearts Seminary here in Franklin specializes in such late vocations.

    Well Sacred Heart Seminary is not the place to send "delayed" vocations. It is a seminary with all the problems of the 60's, 70's, 80's and beyond.

    Anybody remember Fr. Peter Schuessler from the fiasco at Mother of Good Counsel in the late 1980's? What is he doing on the staff there?????
