We are now gathering opinions about it and referring to the boarding school Daegu archdiocese started some 10 years ago, Father Simon Kim Ju-young, vocation director of Chunchon diocese, told ucanews.com on Jan. 13.
The seminary candidates go to general high school in the city but live at the boarding school where a residing priest educates them about priestly life, Father Kim explained.
Chunchon diocese, with only 24 seminarians, has only received one seminarian since 2009.
