Minor seminary provides the first step of formation to selected candidates who have shown signs of vocation to the Society of OSH. This period of formation in general includes every aspects of Christian life and in particular human, spiritual, cultural and intellectual formation. Minor seminary formation is normally of three years including the Plus Two studies. In the case of those students who come after Plus Two or any other higher qualification they should undergo minimum one year of formation before the Philosophy course.
At present our Minor Seminary formation is given two places. In the first year their formation is at the Sneha Bhavan House, Kidangoor. This is a Period of initiation into the Seminary and Christ centred life through the Society of OSH. Now there are 16 seminarians. The next two years of formation will be at the OSH Minor Seminary, S.H Mount. This is the time for their Plus Two studies and spiritual formation. Those students who come after Plus Two also go to Sneha Bhavan House, Kidangoor for their first-year formation.
