Welcome to Sankt Ignatios Ethiopian Tewahedo Orthodox Seminary

The Ethiopian Tewahedo seminary is located in a large house outside of Södertälje, Stockholm.

Like a monastery, members of the seminary share together in a life of study, work and prayer, through which  they are prepared to serve the Church as ministers, deacons, administrators and cantors. In addition to their theological and biblical studies they learn the liturgies of the Church, the songs and hymns of St Yared and are equipped with skills and resources for the pastoral care of the people of God and the Church’s mission in our modern world. The seminary becomes both a practical  and spiritual home for the seminarians who share together truly formative experiences and joyful moments! Singing, prayer and laughter are often heard in the seminary!


The address of the seminary is:
Tysslinge 11
152 97 Södertälje
