SSS TRAINING FOR THE PRIESTHOOD is helping young, poor people who love to become a priest.

What does the training look like?

In response to the needs of today, the curriculum of our seminarists is very dynamic, practical and creative. For many of them it is a dream to grow up together with fellow believers and to develop spiritually in a community. They live among the ordinary people and their daily activities include prayer, study and manual labour. Once they are ordained, they engage in training, teaching, fighting against hunger and misery, passing on Christian values, teaching people to respect one another.

What does the training look like today?

The training for the priesthood covers 8 years after secondary school:

2 or 3 years of philosophy
1 of 2 years of noviciate
4 years of theology + traineeship

How can you help the training for the priesthood?

through prayer
by praying for callings together with the Blessed Sacrament-religious.
By helping to pay for the studies and training of seminarists
By legacies: you really can support the training for the priesthood by stating in your will: "bequest to SSS training for the priesthood…" Please contact us and we will be happy to make arrangements.
