The Vicariate Apostolic of Ingwavuma is particularly blessed with vocations to the priesthood. Half of our priests are diocesans and half religious but two thirds of them all were born in the Vicariate.
God keeps on calling our young people to become priests. We have six seminarians. Four of them stuying at St John Vianney (Pretoria) and two who are joining us this year and will have a "warm up" year in a parish of the Archdiocese of Durban.
During their holidays our seminarians spend some time at home with their families and some time in a parish so that they become more familiar with the daily life of our diocesan and religious priests.
There is also a day when they all come together to meet with the Bishop. This is what we did during January. They all gathered at St Lucia together with the Vocation - Formation Team of the Vicariate: Fr Daniel Nkosi, Fr Vusi Mthembu, Fr Vukani Phoseka.
