If you are involved with vocations work, or if you are interested in the state of seminary formation in the United States, you really should take the time to read these documents.
If you are actively discerning a vocation to the Priesthood, Diaconate, Consecrated Life, or Marriage and you are looking for information to help in your discernment, BE SURE TO CHECK the section at the bottom of the right sidebar for the "labels" on all posts. By clicking on one of these labels it will take you to a page with all posts containing that subject. You will also find many links for suggested reading near the bottom of the right sidebar. Best wishes and be assured of my daily prayers for your discernment.

Final Documents of the Apostolic Visitations to United States Seminaries and Houses of Formation
I'm not sure when these were posted, but I just discovered them this morning. The first link below is the letter to US Bishops from Cardinal O'Malley, Chairman of the Secretariat of Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations, about the final documents/report from the Congregation for Catholic Education on the 2005-2006 Apostolic Visitations to US Seminaries. The second link below is to the actual document posted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
