Exiled Nicaraguan clerics receive sanctuary offer in Miami

Miami’s Archbishop Thomas G. Wenski says, “Most of the people expelled were politicians or candidates for public office that (Daniel) Ortega locked up before the elections,” but among them were “four or five priests, a couple of seminarians, a deacon and an organist.” Although they will be taken in initially by Nicaraguan families, Archbishop Wenski said he has offered the priests and seminarians longer term housing at St. John Vianney College Seminary in Miami.
