Conservation of our Major Seminary, Peru

Project Leader:

Reverend Thomas Huckemann

There are 23 seminarians in the Major Seminary "San José" in Cañete. Nearly all of them come from our relatively poor rural area and can only pay a small amount of the actual cost of their studies and food. One may receive diaconal ordination towards the end of this year. Our seminarians participate in the Theological Updating Course and help organize the event for some 100 priests, seminarians, teachers of religion and other interested people about "Living in Christ: the faith that works through charity" by Prof. Juan José Pérez of the Pontifical Juan Pablo II Institute and the University of San Dámaso in Madrid on the current moral crisis and how a well understood New Evangelization can help to face it. Our seminarians teach catechism and other education components to children, adolescents, and youth on a weekly basis. In our missions we visit villages at 3,200m, teaching doctrine and sacraments. These missionary activities strengthen the seminarians in their vocation because they see the great need for priests, so that the Word of God reaches all corners of the earth. Throughout the year they organized meetings from all in the territories. A blessing has been to receive a pleasant visit from the Nuncio who, afterwards, wrote encouraging words in the gold book of our Seminar. Your support is necessary. Please consider donating to help seminarians continue their studies and pastoral care.

Thank you very much, dear John and Shelley. Yes, we need donations especially tp feed the seminarians. Most of them have not yet left the seminary from March 15th. Let's see if Christmas they might celebrate at home. Covid cases are going down here, thanks to God. We know that it is the contrary to the US and pray foptr all of you. But, on the othjer hand also here is much political turmoil and a leftist anticatholic government has recently took power. Please, continue to support us with you prayers and donations, Fr. Thomas.

Thank you very much for your continued support. Together with your donatioon we als need prayers so that all Seminarians may continue their vocation, They have not left the Seminary from March 15th but cope well with this strange sitation. They need to eat and study, and local donations have stopped nearly completely.Our covernment has renewed total lockdown all Sunday and weekdays from 8pm to 4 pm. People are desperate tp find work and food. There are daily about 200 covid deaths in Peru. With our prayers for all your intentions, Fr. Thomas.
