DGMS on a Mission

Chennai – In order to gain pastoral experience from the theological Seminary, Don Guanella Major Seminary brothers went to the rural villages of Tamil Nadu for camp. Theology students had one week and the first year students had ten days of exposure guided by the professors of Sacred Heart Seminary, Poonamalle. They went to villages like Aarambakkam, Naidukuppam and Thandalam to make a social, cultural and economic analysis of marginalized people. Theology Students were entrusted with pastoral care led and organized in accordance with the Basic Christian Communities. They were sent to various parishes in the Vellore Diocese and exposed to the realities of alternative ministries like cancer institute, tribal welfare institute, prison ministry, refugee camp; experiencing the struggles and daily problems of the people. These situations made theology not only an academic subject but a personal encounter with Christ.
