Welcome to Sankt Ignatios Syriac Orthodox Seminary

The Syriac Church is strong in Sweden but its continuing strength depends on the men and women who will lead it into the future. The Syriac seminary is the place where these leaders are formed.

The Syriac seminary is a unique place for study, prayer and spiritual development for men and women from the Syriac Orthodox tradition.

Seminary Life

The Seminary is located in a large house close to the center of Södertälje. Here students share their daily life, preparing and eating meals, studying and discussing their faith, learning and praying together. The rector and teachers not only provide education and support for the students but also spiritual leadership. Prayers are held four times a day and on Sundays, students are encouraged to take part in services in local Churches in the Syriac tradition.
