New diocesan seminary in Guam

A new diocesan seminary has been established in Guam.

On Wednesday archbishop Anthony Sablan canonically erected the new St. John Paul the Great Archdiocesan Seminary of Guam.

The ceremony took place after a Mass which was celebrated in the parish church of San Isidro in Malojloj.

Attached to the church is the former Carmelite Monastery, which will now become the seminary.

This new seminary is intended to generate more priests coming from local vocations.

There are presently five seminarians.

Students will take their philosophical and theological studies at Blessed Diego Luis De San Vitores Catholic Theological Institute for Oceania located in Yona.
