The primary purpose of Pacific Regional Seminary is to provide for its students the human, spiritual, theological and pastoral formation necessary for the priestly ministry in the Roman Catholic Church, with particular focus on training candidates from the Pacific churches to minister to and serve the peoples of the Pacific.
In carrying out its mission the seminary is committed to the principles of multicultural sensitivity and collaboration in all aspects of formation. For the diocesan college, PRS provides all phases of formation and so the human, spiritual academic, pastoral and communal dimensions are integrated to provide a multicultural approach which nevertheless respects the individual cultures from the students come.
Pacific Regional Seminary has been offering training for the Roman Catholic priesthood for the various dioceses in the Pacific and for religious congregations with houses affiliated to the seminary since 1972.
During this year, 1973, we are celebrating our 40 years at the present site at Nasese, Suva Point. The celebration is centred on the last weekend of August, 23rd to 25th August with three day of presentations on the documents of Vatican II as they relate to seminary formation and to priestly life. All former students and faculty are invited to join in the celebration either by coming in person or joining in spirit from the different parts of the world. The same invitation is expressed to former staff members.
If you are coming, please notify us by email to email@example.com , if possible by early July. [Alternatively by mail which can be sent to Private Mail Bag, 79, Suva, Fiji]
