„To seek for yourself,
Look out into the world.
To seek the world,
Look into yourself.“
The Course of Study at the Priest Seminary prepares students for the priest's ordination and for the profession of priesthood in a congregation of the Christian Community. The tasks of the priest are: the celebration of the Sacraments, the giving of pastoral or soul care and the proclamation of the teachings of Christianity.
What does it mean to be a human being today, striving for freedom on the one hand, whilst at the same time also remaining awake to one's responsibility to the spiritual world? Studying at the Priest Seminary is also about living with such questions, regardless of which profession one eventually decides upon.
The Priest Seminary in Stuttgart is one of three training centres of the Christian Community, where between 40 and 50 students from all over the world come to study. The two-year course begins at the end of September and comprises a basic orientation in the first year and a more intensive deepening in the second year. Each year is divided respectively into three trimesters lasting ten or eleven weeks. This is then followed by a practical year in a congregation.
