This study was designed to better understand today's Catholic seminarian. Who is the seminarian as a person and what influenced him to consider the priesthood? How does he view the academic rigors and spiritual life of a seminarian? In light of a changing world, what are his thoughts on the church and the roles he will be expected to fulfill?
