Seminary Formation

At the heart of our Eparchy's mission lies a crucial Apostolate - the training of aspiring individuals to become dedicated priests. While we currently lack a seminary formation center within our Eparchy, we have collaborated with St. Joseph's Seminary in Dunwoodie, New York, to provide our students with comprehensive priestly education.

During their time at St. Joseph's Seminary, our students immerse themselves in a broad range of theological studies and pastoral training. However, we also understand the significance of preserving the unique spirituality, liturgy, and cherished traditions of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church.

To ensure our students receive this essential aspect of their education, we have designed special programs that focus on the spirituality, liturgy, and traditions of our cherished Church. These programs take place during weekends and vacations, primarily conducted at the Bishop's House.

By combining the academic excellence of St. Joseph's Seminary with the richness of our Syro-Malankara Catholic Church's heritage, we aim to nurture exceptional priests who will serve our Eparchy with unwavering devotion and deep-rooted faith.
