Greg Rupik is on his way to Rome to study for the priesthood. He has started Southern Tier Seminarian as a way to stay connected with the people back home.
From his profile ...
A native of the Chemung Valley, I am currently entering my first year of theology as a seminarian for the Diocese of Rochester. I will be residing at the Pontifical North American College in Rome, and studying at the Pontifical Gregorian University, for roughly the next 5 years. If everything goes exactly as planned, I will be ordained to the diocesan priesthood in June 2014. While nothing is impossible with God, He often has things turn out very differently than we plan them!
I'll be praying for him.
