Latin Patriarchal Seminary of Beit Jala Proudly Shares Its Activities During the Academic School Year 2018-2019
The Latin Patriarchal Seminary of Beit Jala (Seminary), one of the institutions our Order supports in the Holy Land through the Adopt-A-Seminarian program, has provided photographs documenting its various activities during the academic school year 2018-2019. Located near Jerusalem, the Seminary educates, trains, and forms men to serve as priests for the Roman Catholic community of the Holy Land.
The Seminary was founded in Jerusalem in 1852 and transferred to Beit Jala in 1857. The curriculum includes a year of spirituality, a year of French, two years of philosophy and four years of theology. From its founding in 1852 until 2008, the Seminary formed and ordained 260 priests, 12 of which became bishops and three became patriarchs. We would like to share these beautiful and inspiriting photos sent by Fr. Yacoub.
