Welcome from Bishop Lennon
Dear Friend in Christ,
After being appointed as the Bishop of the Diocese of Cleveland, I must tell you how thrilled I was to learn that we have a college seminary program right here in our own diocese. Upon my first visit with the seminarians, I quoted the late John Paul II, in saying that I see the seminary as “the heart of the diocese.” I am happy to welcome you to Borromeo Seminary.
