Legion will close apostolic school, novitiate in Cornwall, Ontario; apostolic students and novices have solid options to continue formation

Novices

The 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.

Fr. Luis 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.”

At the 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.
