On May 21 five men graduated from Becket Hall, the diocesan residential program for those discerning priestly vocations. All five plan to study at seminaries during the 2011-12 school year. These men are diverse in terms of age and background -- there are two native Colombians still working on their English, two recent college graduates in their early 20s and a former public-school educator in his late 30s -- but they are bound together by their eagerness to learn and to grow in their faith. The program's director, Father William Coffas, and two of the graduates talked about what living together at Becket has taught them.
