Rome, Italy, Jan 12, 2022 / 13:00 pm
Father Peter Harman has agreed to delay his departure as rector of the Pontifical North American College, the seminary’s board of governors said on Wednesday.
The seminary for U.S. students in Rome announced in October that Harman would complete his six-year term on Jan. 31.
But the board of governors said on Jan. 12 that Harman, a priest of the Diocese of Springfield, Illinois, would now stay until June 30.
Bishop Robert P. Deeley of Portland, Maine, the chairman of the board of governors, said: “We are grateful that Fr. Harman has agreed to extend his term through June.”
