St. Mbaaga’s Seminary is a Diocesan Major Seminary belonging to Kampala Archdiocese, in Uganda.
The Archbishop of Kampala, His Grace Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga is the supreme head of this Seminary and he is the one responsible for its staffing and general welfare and in drawing the regulations that govern it.
St. Mbaaga’s Seminary Ggaba which had been in existence since 1976, was incorporated in 1976 to which royal assent was given on February 16th of that year.
St. Mbaaga’s Seminary has the power to grant its bachelors degrees in theology, and in Philosophy affiliated to the Urbaniana University Rome.
St. Mbaaga’s Seminary was established by the Holy See’s Congregation of Catholic Education, in February 1976, as an autonomous Philosophical and Theological Institute with the special faculty to grant the academic degree of the Baccalaureate in Philosophy and Sacred Theology [S.T.B.]. By this faculty, St. Mbaaga’s Seminary’s mission is greatly enhanced in the priestly preparation and overall academic program.
Spiritual Formation Resources
The Spiritual Formation program works in co-ordination with the academic, human and pastoral components of the total formation program in preparing candidates for priestly service among the people of God. The program’s specific purpose is to foster the human and spiritual maturity of the candidates as they grow in relationship with and imitation of the person of Jesus Christ. Students are called to see their lives as a daily, free response to the animating presence of the Spirit of the Risen Christ. This is a gradual and life-long journey of discernment, one that is encouraged and promoted in various ways during the eight years of training in the Seminary Formation program.
It is the Holy Spirit that calls, forms, and transforms the seminarians in our care. Nevertheless, the formation faculty has the responsibility in a human way for the training and formation of the seminarians by providing the context, climate, structures, and opportunities for them to do their part in disposing themselves and responding to God’s grace through all the activities, situations, events, and persons that they encounter each day.REVIEW HERE
