Come to me all who are burdened

When our souls are weary, Christ is the only consolation where we experience his love to the fullest.

The Season of Lent.

Rend your hearts and not your garments.Return to the LORD your God.

The Philosophate standing majestically in the midst of Dumbara Mountains

The massive edifice where the future priests are trained to develop their reason

Do this in memory of me

All the seminarians and priests are invited to be another Christ and to follow the footsteps of Jesus, the High Priest

Faith seeking understanding

Future priests are taught Philosophy not to question the Divine existence, but to consolidate their faith in God
