“Although He was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered” (Heb 5:8)
Like a plant, a holy vocation to the priesthood does not come to maturity before season. When a by shows some interest to enter the priesthood, it is wrong to simply ignore or label it as a childish dream because each case has to be taken individually. The best thing is to place that seed in a healthy environment which helps it grow.
The Redemptorist Junior Seminary which was first established in Dodamwala Kandy in 1937 in order to train the young candidates who wished to enter the priesthood or brotherhood in the Congregation of The Most Holy Redeemer. It was later shifted to Colombo in 1981 for mainly want of space and facilities as more and more young boys joined the seminary. The Redemptorist Junior Seminary is situated in Thimbirigasyaya in close proximity to St. Theresa’s Church.
