However, the school still lacks some essential learning and teaching materials such as text books, computers, staff rooms and teacher’s offices and library.
Shanwa Minor Seminary
We have started building a diocesan Shanwa minor seminary. The construction has been started since 1998 but not yet completed due to financial constraint. The seminary is located at Shanwa outside of Maswa town about six kilometers. The mission of this new establishment in our diocese is solely for nursing priestly vocations. This seminary is still under construction and after completion it will have a capacity to accommodate 400 students. It still needs a chapel, Rectory for priests residence, science laboratory, library, dormitories, dining hall, convent, general houses for lay teaching staff, administration (office) block hall, learning and teaching materials.

Training of catechists, who are responsible for the training of catechumen, candidates and confirmation program in parishes and mission churches.
The Centre as it has been indicated above has over 47 years since its inception. The infrastructure, buildings, lecture rooms reflect those years. So, there is a need to do major repair of the whole centre. The centre is of paramount important for our primary as well for a deeper evangelization.
