Welcome to Sankt Ignatios Syrian Orthodox Seminary
The Syrian Orthodox Church is strong in Sweden but its continuing strength depends on the men and women who will lead it into the future. The Syrian Orthodox seminary is the place where these leaders are formed
The seminary is a unique place for study, prayer and spiritual development for men and women from the Syrian Orthodox tradition.
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 Syrian Orthodox tradition.
