We have just given thanks for the past in our Mass and now I see the future in the building that I am just about to bless because it speaks to me of the expansion of this school. The programme of formation in those days saw the young men who aspired to become Holy Ghost Fathers, first finish their classical or secondary education, either in the Junior Scholasticates in Blackrock and Rockwell, or elsewhere, and then begin their philosophical course for three years or do a few years prefecting in one of the colleges before starting their philosophy course.The young faces I see around me, speak to me of the future. The young people bear that future in their hands and it is our responsibility to enable them to advance to a glorious future for the Church and for the society which they are to help build up. After prefecting, or the philosophy course, whichever came second, they did their theological course of four years, with ordination at the end of the third year, and then made their one-year novitiate before taking their vows as Holy Ghost Fathers.Shield: Quarterings Or; Scroll outline Or, with ground Argent.
