The Seminary Theme and Logo are based on the Theme and Logo for
the Pastoral Year 2023-2024 of our Archdiocese.

formation oriented towards future priestly ministry, moulds
seminarians to be Alter Christus (another Christ) to represent
Christ as stewards of the mysteries of God and reach out to people
in the world (hand extending out from the Seminary).

Eucharist (broken host) and moving out to be witnesses of love
and service (the human figures on the broken host).
The Logo is beautifully designed and depicted by Sem. Malcolm Colaco.
