Kristu Jyothi Minor Seminary Miao Inaugurates Academic Year 2013 – 2014
27th June, Miao: Kristu Jyothi Minor Seminary, Miao, inaugurated its new Academic Year for 2013 – 2014 on 8th June 2013. Rev. Fr. Jose Chemparathy SDB, the new Rector of the Seminary and Fr. Joseph Telangani, the Assistant Priest and Administrator were led to the Altar of God in procession by the Seminarians who arrived a few days earlier. They planned and prepared well for this important day of the year. During the offertory, the seminarians presented themselves together with the bread and wine to express symbolically their inner desire and willingness to become labourers in His Vineyard.
The Diocese conducted many vocation camps during the summer holidays this year, under the leadership of Fr. Joseph. The result of these camps is very encouraging as we have 18 local young boys in the seminary.
The classes are on in full swing. “I am very happy to be here, learning new things every day and becoming closer to God,” said one of the Seminarians while speaking about his experience in the Seminary. “We would like to thank all our benefactors who make big sacrifices to help us in our aspiration to become Priests to serve God through His people.” said another.
It is the first academic year in this newly constructed seminary building. The seminarians were linving in a humble house made of bamboo with tin sheet roof till December 2012. “We thank God for all our benefactors who contributed generously towards the construction of our new Seminary and we also pray for them everyday. May God bless each one of them.,” all seminarians said in unison.
You can also support one of these Seminarians to help persevere in his Vocation through your valuable prayers and support. For more details, please contact us here http://www.miaodiocese.com/contact-us/ .
