The seminary is an ecclesiastical institution for the formation of Future Catholic Priests. It is referred to as a Seminary and not just a Theological College because the seminary brings to mind a humane environment where seeds are sown, nurtured and pruned to bear fruits and to provide shelter for the homeless and food for the hungry. The seminary has a universal accreditation for it does exactly what is done in almost all the Catholic Theological faculties in the world.
