The Pontifical North American College Seminary, sponsored by the U.S. bishops, is embarking on a $7 million project to build a 10-story, 36,000-square-foot tower to house high-tech classrooms, practice chapels where the students will learn to preach and celebrate the sacraments and administrative offices.

James and Miriam Mulva of Bartlesville, Okla., made an $8.5 million gift to the seminary to fund the new building, technology updates throughout the existing facility and other improvements.

The main campus of the North American College is on Vatican property on the Janiculum Hill overlooking St. Peter’s Square and Basilica. The new building will rise on the south side of the existing building and be connected to it.

Among the close to 250 seminarians and young priests at the college, there are several from Australia and Canada.
