Archbishop Peter visits seminary for first time

By Jackson Saunders

The new Archbishop of Melbourne, Peter Comensoli, visited Corpus Christi College for the first time on Wednesday, September 12.

At the time of his visit, Archbishop Peter had been in his new role for just 42 days.

Archbishop Peter joined seminary staff and students for the Wednesday night community meal and afterwards gave an address. His main idea was to emphasise the important role of the parish and the role that we as future priests will have in caring for these communities.

Archbishop Peter then opened the floor to questions from seminarians. Questions asked covered topics such as how to maintain the ‘common touch’ with people in their daily lives, approaches to youth ministry, how to connect with parish schools and advice on how to spend our days off. Archbishop Peter revealed that one of his hobbies is completing jigsaw puzzles. He has a 5000 piece jigsaw puzzle which he hopes to begin in due course in his free time.

Corpus Christi College thanks Archbishop Peter for his time and visit to the seminary.
