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
