"Is this heaven?" "No, it's Iowa." a memorable phrase from the movie Field of Dreams which was filmed near Divine Word College where I am visiting Glenmary's aspirants. Here at Divine Word the catch phrase is "Educating Tomorrows Missionaries." Glenmary Home Missioners' aspirancy program is sponsoring four men who are currently enrolled in Divine Word. Three of the men are finishing their philosophy degree and the fourth is studying English as a Second Language.
The aspirancy program is for men who are discerning a missionary vocation to the priesthood with Glenmary but have not completed their college degree. Divine Word College also has a great English program for those men from another country who need to learn English before continuing with their theology studies. Aspirancy is just one of the Stages of Glenmary Formation. If you would like to learn more about any aspect of Glenmary formation you can check out our website www.glenmary.org or give us a call (513)874-8900.
I am at Divine Word College in Epworth, Iowa visiting the aspirants and the school staff for a few days. See you back in Ohio soon...
