A week after Easter, the Seminary had the joy of witnessing the taking of clerical habit by six Seminarians in the Year of Spirituality: 3 South Koreans, 1 Australian, 1 Nigerian, and 1 Filipino. A Solemn High Mass was offered by the Seminary Rector, Fr Daniel Themann. His sermon on the significance of the cassock may be listened to here.

Fr Karl Pepping, the Principal of St Philomena School, traveled from Brisbane, Queensland to assist as Deacon, while Rev Mr John Mwangi served as Subdeacon in the ceremonies.
