Salvatorians Buy Hostel For Seminary

By a Stag Reporter

Miles Aircraft apprentices have vacated their Berkshire hostel for students wanting to become Salvatorian priests.

The former hostel, Sindlesham House, which is five miles from Reading, has 40 acres of land. Now St. Mary's College, it will house 13to 17-year-old boys.

Important acquisition of the Salvetorian Fathers, Sindlesham, Is being started as a seminary Lust over one year after the establishment of the English Province of this modern Congregation, now • comprising 45 priests, with houses, and a large parish and boys' school, at Wealdstone, Middlesex.

Salvatorians are also at Chester, Abbots Langley (hallowed by memories of the English Pope Breakspear), Thornbury and Ystradgynlais.

Characteristic of their work is the encouragement of prayer for priests, especially by means of the monthly Priests' Day.

The new Juniorate at Sindlesham is a late Georgian house, with a stone portico at the main entrance with miniature done columns; the main door, of oak, is massive, and the drawing-room is now a very spacious chapel. Juniors were originally temporarily at Alton, Hants; Fr. Dunne, S.D.S., is their Superior.

Van. Francis Jordan founded the Society of the Divine Saviour in 1881, and the mother-house is just outside the Vatican in Rome.
