Scotland’s bishops choose new rector to reopen seminary in Spain

The Bishops of Scotland plan to reopen the Royal College College in Salamanca (above) as a working seminary.

The  Scottish hierarchy has also proposed Fr Tom Kilbride, currently parish priest of Our Lady of Good Counsel, Glasgow, to serve as rector of the college in Spain.

Scotland’s bishops plan to welcome future seminarians from January 2016 for an annual six-month preparatory period before they go to the Pontifical Scots College in Rome.

The bishops hope that one day soon there will be sufficient numbers of seminarians for Salamanca to serve as a full seminary again.
