2012 has been a memorable year for the Chaldean Seminary of Mar Abba the Great. Its four seminarians were blessed as Sub-Deacons in July. On September 7, 2012, they accomplished another success; they are now college graduates. The four seminarians earned their Bachelor of Science in New Evangelization from John Paul the Great Catholic University. The school held its 4th commencement at St Margaret’s Catholic Church in Oceanside, CA. The celebration began with the celebration of the Eucharist followed by the graduation ceremony and commencement.
The seminarians, Ankido Sipo, Simon Esshaki, David Stephen and Royal Hannosh will be spending the rest of this year leading Bible Studies, retreats and other youth groups before continuing their education in the new year. May God bless them as they continue their formation toward the priesthood.
