Number of Seminarians at new SSPX seminary in VA?

  • Does anyone know how many seminarians they now have in the Virginia SSPX seminary?

    I ask this because I have on record a Web page from the SSPX in late 2012 where they explained they had 75 seminarians in Winona, and this was the reason they needed a bigger seminary built in Virginia. Below is the text:

    75 seminarians at Winona
    WINONA, MN
     11-27-2012
    We present below two pictures from St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, Minnesota, featuring the entire seminary (staff and seminarians) and the incoming Humanities Year (a type of pre-seminary year before the Spirituality Year).
    Presently St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary has 93 residents comprised of 9 professors, 75 seminarians, 3 professed brothers, 3 brother novices and 3 brother postulants.
    As previously reported (see below), entrants into the SSPX's seminary in North America has increased so much that a new seminary is now required which is being constructed in Buckingham, Virginia.
    Please keep these priests, seminarians and brothers in your prayers, particularly both of the latter for perseverance in their vocations.

  • I remember that the presentation at Queen of Angels parish, it was said it is being built for a capacity of 111. It is also remembered that 75 was the proclaimed number of seminarists at that time. I would imagine that by now, with the new batch of recruits they've had over the past two years, there should likely be at least 90...

    Nice imagination. But, I am asking, what is the present number right now?
