Spiritan Missionary Seminary is owned by the Spiritans. It is now composed of non-resident and resident Seminarians and Staff members. Some of the Seminarians aspire to be Spiritans, others Diocesans, still others members of other congregations. Despite the enriching varieties of Seminarians from different congregations and dioceses, you are all called to sanctify yourselves and to sanctify the faithful.
“The fruitfulness of our efforts to promote vocations depends primarily on God’s free action, yet as pastoral experience confirms, it is also helped by the quality and depth of the personal and communal witness of those who have already answered the Lord’s call to the ministerial priesthood and to the consecrated life, for their witness is then able to awaken in others a desire to respond generously to Christ’s call (Benedict XV1’s message for the 47th World Day of Prayer for Vocations: 25 April 2010, Fourth Sunday of Easter ‘ /L’Osservatore Romano: Wednesday, 17 Ferbruary 2010).AA
