On behalf of the Management and Staff of the Seminary of Saints Peter and Paul, Bodija, Ibadan, Nigeria, I welcome you to the official website of our institution. I sincerely acknowledge the efforts of the immediate past rector, Very Rev. Fr. Michael Sunday Sasa for deeming it fit to ride on the technological advantage that a project of this magnitude offers. The Seminary of Saints Peter and Paul is a regional seminary that trains candidates for the Roman Catholic Priesthood. The formation programme includes studies in Philosophy and Theology. As a regional Seminary, Saints Peter and Paul caters for the training need of the Ecclesiastical provinces of Lagos, Ibadan and Benin City. However, the seminary also serves the training need of dioceses and congregations outside the aforementioned provinces upon request by local ordinaries or superiors who wish their candidates journey with and through us.
The Mission of Saints Peter and Paul Major Seminary is the formation of men for sacred ministry in the celibate priesthood. The Seminary aims at training young men in priestly virtues and in the acquisition of such knowledge as requisite for the salvation of souls and the advancement of the Kingdom of God. The vision of the Formation Team is to train priests whose relevance to society will be apparent through the service they render. To do this effectively, provision is made for a serene environment for the nurturing of the inner growth of young men seeking holiness and the development of their intellect, talents and skills. Our Chapel is situated at the centre of the premises, reflecting Christ as the core of our life.
