Samuel Pearson (5th year) chats to some of the seminary’s newest brothers about life, vocation and being Catholic today.
“It’s the best office in the seminary” says Fr Ed happily, quoting the Rector, as we walked toward A-block which houses it and the first years. “It’s certainly got the best view”, he says. Indeed, it overlooks a rather typical Carlton streetscape of renovated terrace houses and large trees lining the median strip. Their leaves shift haphazardly in a gentle breeze, which on this sunny Thursday afternoon, all seem to emphasise the laidback and gentle nature of the man sitting opposite me in his new office.
