What Being a Seminarian Teaches You

Hello, my name is Christopher Abraham. I am 18 years of age and in my first year of College Seminary at St. Andrew’s Hall at Seton Hall University. As I am preparing for my second semester of college and seminary life, I look back to see what I have learned from my previous semester, just from being in the seminary.

Hands down, one of the greatest blessings at the seminary is the amazing brotherhood which is found at the house of St. Andrews. Throughout the first semester, I was able to make extremely close friends who I now call brothers. These men are truly one of the greatest bunch of people I have ever met. They show their support for one another regardless of wherever one feels called. From this support, you never feel alone during your trials and tribulations of school and seminary life.

Another wonderful aspect of the seminary that I have obtained is a better prayer life. In result of the structured prayer life at the seminary, my love and willingness to pray more has increased astronomically.

Lastly, seminary is hands down is the greatest place to discern where God is calling you. Regardless of where God is calling you, the college seminary will mold you into a better Catholic man, either to be a strong faithful Catholic priest, or to be a strong faithful Catholic husband or lay man.

The prayer, the classes, the friendships, the atmosphere, all of these things that build up the college seminary, can be used in any vocation that one is called too. This amazing aspect is what I truly found to be the most beautiful aspect of the seminary.
