I am so glad to have this rare opportunity to study in St. Peter’s seminary Madera while pursuing priestly vocation. I feel so much mesmerized with the amazing administration and parental formators who are tirelessly working for the betterment of the seminary and giving us excellent mentorship. The seminary is coming to its vivacity via architectural outlook. Academically, it is so orderly and the formators and teachers encourage us to take our studies very seriously so as to earn a better future. We have weekly spiritual talks that help us develop personal relationship with God, love the Church and respect other human beings. With a lot of inspiration, we get in this place, I feel totally at home while at St. Peter’s Seminary Madera.
This is aged 15 from St. Augustine’s Parish Mukongoro. All my dreams are to become a priest in future. My challenge is that I come from a poor family which is not able to pay my school fees. This situation is making me worried all the time that I might drop out of the Seminary.
I am aged 19 from St. Michael Catholic Parish Wera. I had just stayed home without any more hope of being at school until the Rector called my parents to bring me to study in the seminary at their own generosity. I am willing to become a priest with all my heart but I am from a poor family that cannot support me financially.
I am aged 16 from St. Kizito’s Catholic Parish Katine. I have deep interest in becoming a priest but my family is struggling with serious financial challenges. Sometimes I feel like giving up on education.
