Vatican-directed inspectors to visit Sacred Heart Major Seminary


DETROIT A team of Roman Catholic priests and bishops plans to visit Detroit's Sacred Heart Major Seminary this month.

It's part of Vatican-directed inspections started in September of all American seminaries.

The visits are one result of the sexual abuse crisis that hit the American church in 2002.

Officials say the study will give special attention to schools' preparation for the celibate life and fidelity to church teachings on morality.
