Lwena, 13 July, 2023 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
St. Joseph Major Seminary and St. John Mary Vianney Propaedeutic Seminary in Angola’s Lwena Diocese are seeking partnerships for the upkeep of the “hundreds of Seminarians” enrolled in the two institutions of Priestly formation.
In a statement issued Wednesday, July 12, the Dean of Studies and Discipline at St. Joseph Major Seminary laments the lack of funds for 2023/2024 academic year to continue the training of future Priests.
“The lack of financial means to cover the fixed costs of the seminaries has prompted the launching of an appeal for help for hundreds of Seminarians to return to the formation houses,” Fr. Amilton Camuele says.

Fr. Camuele adds, “We hereby ask all parishes, missions, communities, apostolic movements, groups and other movements of the Church and beyond to make special offerings for the Seminaries.”
