ASIA/CHINA - The goals for the new year of the preparatory Seminary of Xing Tai
Xing Tai (Agenzia Fides) - A spirituality centered on the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Penance: is Don Zhang Ji Can’s exhortation, Rector of the preparatory Seminary of Xing Tai, in He Bei province, to 70 seminarians during the celebration for the opening of the new school year, which took place on Sunday, September 1. According to information collected by Fides, this year's Seminar has 30 new students, the largest group in recent years. "We are living in such a chaotic and tumultuous world that leads us to neglect the authentic inner needs.
As they are people ready to devote themselves to Christ, we must give Christ priority - continued the rector. In the formation of our personality, we must be responsible people; in our studies, we should not limit ourselves to textbooks. Only faith will allow us to fulfill this project".
In 24 years of activity, the Seminary of Xing Tai has formed 1,200 seminarians, and is preparing to celebrate next year, the 25th anniversary of its founding in 1989. The Seminar has always given the utmost attention to harmony with the universal Church, and is currently living the Year of Faith with many initiatives, as indicated by the rector in his letter for this occasion.
