What Is Life Like in the Seminary? A Video Vignette… April 20, 2015

With ordinations up 25% this year you might be interested in what life is like these days for a young man considering the priesthood in the Catholic Church.

Dan Rogers is one of these talented young men who is currently in seminary.

He is also a techie designer extraordinaire and  “digital evangelist.” Dan specializes in “web-based ministry through social media, interactive site design, and creative film / multimedia platforms.”

You may know Dan as the co-founder of the wildly popular movement promoting women’s vocations to the religious life, Imagine Sisters. He is also the writer and lead director of “Light of Love”, a documentary film available free online about women’s religious life. In addition to all of the other projects he is involved in right now, including helping to promote the new film Media Apostle, Dan has put together a short vignette on life in the seminary.

Check out Dan’s video and be inspired:

    The way they make bread is like finger nails on a blackboard to me. It seems a bit awkward and stand-offish. It is as if they are too reserved to put love into the food.

      Most people learning a new skill are a little hesitant and shy, and I think that’s what you’re seeing (and maybe a little of the embarrassment of men who haven’t had a lot of experience in the kitchen). Once they’ve mastered the skill, I think they’ll loosen up, and those with a talent for baking will then start adding love as an ingredient.
