CNEWA has been involved in helping form seminarians in India for decades — indeed, one could say our work there is literally foundational. At St. Thomas the Apostle Seminary, the first stone was blessed and put into place on Easter Sunday 1961, and CNEWA has helped sustain it ever since.
The same holds true for the Mary Matha Major Seminary, which CNEWA has supported since it first opened its doors in 1997. In fact, our connection there goes even further; we also helped fund its construction.
At these and other seminaries throughout India, CNEWA has sought to be a supportive presence, accompanying young men as they answer the call to a religious vocation and providing assistance so they are formed spiritually and intellectually. Significantly, we have also helped not only to build new priests and religious, but we have also played a part in building and maintaining the very schools and seminaries that help to house them.
