Seminary Formation

The Diocese of Ikot Ekpene has three seminaries.  First, it operates Queen of Apostles’ Seminary, which is a boarding school for boys ages 10-18.  Secondly, for those boys who wish to pursue seminary studies, the diocese offers a spiritual year at St. Anthony of Padua Seminary.  Lastly, for those young men over the age of 19 who feel called to enter priestly formation, the diocese sends Seminarians to Major Seminary, where four years of philosophy and four years of theology are taught.  Click on a link below for more:
