Legion of Christ announced plans to close its apostolic school
and novitiate in Cornwall, Ontario. The decision is
in response to the order’s need to better consolidate resources
and focus on personnel, said Fr Luis Garza LC, North
American Territorial Director.
“We have decided that the novices in
Cornwall will continue their formation at our Cheshire (Connecticut) Novitiate,”
Fr Luis said. “I believe these young men
will appreciate this vibrant and beautiful seminary.”
The novices will relocate
to Cheshire during their second semester later this month.
said that maintaining an apostolic school requires a large amount
of resources, and “in the best interest of our apostolic
students and novices, we decided this decision was the most
logical course of action. We will continue to
invite young men across Canada to explore Legionary vocations.”
end of this school year, the apostolic students have the
opportunity to continue their formation in other locations. The Legion
of Christ operates two apostolic schools in North America --
one in New Hampshire, within a 5-hour drive from Cornwall,
and the other in Rolling Prairie, Indiana, an 8-hour distance from
the Toronto area.
