Over decades, hundreds of aspiring priests from here and elsewhere attended St. Thomas Seminary in Hannibal and later kept in touch with classmates through an alumni website. But while the seminary was closed years ago, that website has just been shut down by St. Louis native and Jeff City dioceses Bishop John Gaydos. Among other roles, it had helped connect ex-students who had been victimized by Bishop Anthony O'Connell, Fr. Manus Daly and several other predatory faculty members. The shut down has been denounced by former seminarian Mike Wegs who blogs at ThyChild'sFace.
