Seminary Re-opened after Christmas Vacation | 05-01-2019
After a vacation period of 20 days from December 15th 2018 to January 05th 2019 the seminary came back to its normal functioning on 05th January with the Holy Mass of the whole community led by Rev. Martin Kallungal, Vice-Rector of the seminary. This vacation is rather a little longer so that the brothers will be able to help their parish priests in the occasion of Christmas and they also will be able to attend the ordinations of new priests which normally occur after Christmas in Kerala for the priestly candidates of those who belong to the dioceses in Kerala.
