Vocation is derived from a Latin word voco/vocare/vocatus meaning to call. The call of God comes to different people in different ways. As some are called to the priesthood and religious life, others are called to the marriage life. Some are called for service at the altar, while others are called to give necessary support to those who have left everything to follow Christ.
The Seminary derived its name from a Latin word Seminarium meaning seedbed for nursing vocation to the priesthood. Seminary is not just another secondary school where sound academic training and performances abound, but a place where future priests are trained and formed for the propagation of the goodnews of salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ. As a formation ground, a whole human person is formed in spiritual, intellectual, pastoral, moral and physical areas. A priest-to-be is therefore expected to be spiritually, pastorally, morally and physically balanced; that is, balanced in all ramifications.
