Life as a seminarian explored by Kolbe students
14 November 2022
The students learned about the missionary nature of the seminarians, gained insights into the theology, philosophy, and ethics units they study. Of particular interest to the students was hearing the personal stories of how each priest and seminarian journeyed to now living extraordinary lives dedicated to God. The students also took to the soccer field to compete against seminarians in a fun, social match.
Dustine Magno said he ‘learnt about how each piece of the building is intentional and has symbolism, and how people can find their vocations even later on in life.’

Antonio di Russo echoed similar sentiments, adding that one of the highlights of the day was the way the seminarian’s described brotherhood. ‘It was amazing, to the point that it really hit home in a special way in my heart and I’m very grateful for it.’
Rector Father Michael Moore said it was encouraging to see students who were open to learning more about the faith and the gift of religious vocation.
‘We are all called to be Christian to fulfill our Baptism call. Understanding faith allows us to decide what Christ is calling us to, remembering that we have the freedom to choose our path.’
‘It was such a pleasure having the students over and we hope this will inspire other schools to provide their students with a similar experience.’
