This past week CTU welcomed more than one hundred new students to begin their studies and spiritual formation for a variety of ministries in the church.  Some will become priests, some are religious sisters and brothers, and many will serve as lay ecclesial ministers.  Some serve in pastoral ministries, some are hospital chaplains, others are youth ministers and teachers, to name only a few.

But cross into the area controlled by the Palestinian Authority and the Wall is filled with graffiti, demanding its demolition.
