October 26 "The bishop also wishes me to start a seminary as soon as possible to educate young men for the priesthood. At present there is no such institution in the country [for German-speaking students]. Boys of the wealthier classes usually study for secular professions. For this reason, almost all the secular clergy are of foreign birth: Irish, German, French."—Boniface Wimmer, in a letter written on this day in 1846.
