Motto: “In Hoc Saxo”. Translated as “On this Rock”. This is derived from the text of scripture: “In hoc saxo Ecclesiam meam aedificabo” (Matthew 16:18; “On this rock, I will build my Church”, the words that Jesus addressed to St. Peter the Apostle, who is the Patron Saint of the Seminary. The Seminary Day is annually celebrated on June 29th, the Solemnity of Ss. Peter and Paul.

Welcome To


Soroti Catholic Diocese was curved out of Tororo Diocese in 1981 with The Rt. Rev. Erasmus Desiderius Wandera becoming its first bishop. He has been succeeded by; The Rt. Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Obbo, A.J and currently the Rt. Rev. Dr. Joseph Eciru Oliach. The new diocese then from inception faced the challenge of shortage of pastoral personnel since it had depended largely on the Mill Hill and White Fathers Missionaries who were getting older, with some returning to their home countries.

In line with the law of the Church, the founding bishop then established St. Peter’s Seminary Madera, in 1983 to train the local clergy to evangelize their fellow Africans. This seminary was established in the very structures of the former Holy Angels College, Madera; a boys’ school that got dilapidated during the turbulent wars that affected the entire Teso sub-region in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.

Indeed, this Seminary has tried her best to supply pastors for the diocese and beyond. She has produced over 70 priests and many lay men of good repute serving society in a wide variety of professions. The ordination of the Rt. Rev. Dr. Joseph Eciru Oliach as the third Bishop of Soroti Catholic Diocese on May 25th, 2019, also brought joy to the Seminary by being the very first Bishop from the alumni.

Vision: To be a priestly vocation’s orientation center offering integral formation and education.

Mission: To educate the young boys and nurture in them seeds of priestly vocation; thus, enabling them to grow and develop in the Catholic faith with a spirit of responsible leadership and loyal service to the Church and State.
