Christ the King Seminary

Christ the King Seminary is owned and run by the Archdiocese of Nyeri, Kenya. Men come from all of Kenya to study in three schools of formation — Spirituality, Philosophy and Theology — within one compound. Currently, there are 242 men studying there for the priesthood.

The annual cost of the education that they receive is about $1200 per student. This year, 28 will be ordained to the priesthood and 39 to the Diaconate. The men work at the compound cleaning, painting and farming to help support the seminary.

When they are not busy with their studies and work, the seminarians enjoy sports which they not only play amongst themselves but also compete against neighboring institutions.

The seminary encourages them to join clubs to promote their talents in communications, debating and writing. The men meet regularly in small Christian communities to share the Word of God and pray together.

The seminarians and their faculty depend upon the St. Peter Apostle Society for their educational support.

Recently, Christ the King Seminary released a CD of their choir. Click below to see and hear them praise the Word of God in song and dance! Please pray for these men as they study to become priests, ordained for the universal Church.
