IVE Formation

The Second Vatican Council stresses on the necessity of a suitable formation of the priest for the good of the souls: “This sacred synod is fully aware that the desired renewal of the whole Church depends to a great extent on the ministry of its priests. It proclaims the extreme importance of priestly training.(Decree Optatam Totius (OT), preface)

Meanwhile, our Directory of Major Seminaries states:

For the ministry of priest to be truly effective, capable of transforming each man and all of man, the priest must possess certain qualities, having been trained in every aspects; formation that primarily and principally depends on what has been received and have been undertaken at the seminary”
