Welcome

to our friends and visitors!

It is our pleasure to share with you some information regarding our Seminary community and our formation programme for the priesthood. More than mere information, we would like to share – as far as possible – our own experience itself, the motivations that led us here, the joy that the Lord gives us in following him, challenges we meet every day, the hope that characterizes our vision for the future of the Church in the world today, and above all our love for Christ who has called us and chose us to be his “friends” (Jn 15:15).

Theme of the Year

“She sat at the Lord’s feet” (cfr Lk 10:39)

The reading that this year is illuminating and accompanying the Seminary community treats the visit of Jesus to Martha and Mary in Bethany (Lk 10:38-42).  This reading from the Gospel is represented in the icon that has been placed in the chapel.  The icon is a daily reminder to us of the call  to strenghten our bond with Christ.  In fact, in line with the iconic tradition, the icon helps those who see it, or better, those who read it, go deeper into the mystery of Christ.
