Charlotte, NC - New Minor Seminary

The Diocese of Charlotte, North Carolina was established in 1972. I don't what arrangements they have for diocesan seminarians right now, but they're planning to establish a minor seminary in collaboration with Belmont Benedictine Abbey. Sort of good news, wouldn't you say? In this era of reduced vocations and all?

Very good news indeed!

Seminaries are actually slowly filling up these days. E.g., fifteen years ago the North American College in Rome was barely half-full. Now, I understand there's basically a waiting list to get in.

If I recall correctly, the PCPA's in Charlotte were going to share land for their new monastery and a new seminary.  Of course, those PCPA's have returned to OLAM, but wonder if this seminary will be on that same land.  Has anyone heard?
