The Pontifical College Josephinum is one of more than 180 Roman Catholic seminaries in the United States. But it’s the only seminary in the U.S. that’s run by the Vatican.
"There are only 15 pontifical seminaries in the world. 14 of them are in Italy and then Columbus, Ohio. That makes us a unique seminary in the United States," says Father James Wehner, the Josephinum’s president.
About 200 men are enrolled at the Josephinum. While the seminary offers academic degrees, Wehner says there’s a larger purpose.

While trying to pay off his own student loans, Aaron Calafato found himself working at a for-profit university. Based on his experiences in the for-profit education industry, Calafato wrote and performs in For Profit, a one man show that combines storytelling, comedy and theatre.
Calafato will perform For Profit this weekend at the Occupy Dayton Community Space on East Third Street in Dayton.
