Ex-seminary students donate books


Former students of St. Paul the Apostle Seminary (Spas) in Mangochi over the weekend donated books to the school worth over K500,000.

The event started with a celebration of mass in the morning followed by a tour of the school.

Speaking on behalf of the Rector of the Minor Seminary, Vice Rector, Father William Dodoma applauded the former students for coming to the rescue of the school.


“We don’t take the donation for granted. This will go a long way to help our school in sealing off the problems we have on books. We have so many problems ranging from dilapidated infrastructure,” he said.

Speaking on behalf of the alumni, Lawrence Jamu promised to continue helping the school as it has contributed a lot to the lives of the alumni.

“We are here to say thank you to the school that made us what we are today. It’s not that all is rosy with us but we feel we can share the little we have. Please take care of the books,” Jamu said.


Later on the sidelines of the trip, the alumni agreed to find a long-lasting solution to the problems rocking the institution.

During the event, Montfort Howahowa was elected National President of the school’s alumni while Charles Baluwa and Christopher Jamu were elected to lead Lilongwe and Blantyre chapters respectively.

In his remarks, Howahowa appealed to all former students of the school to join hands and participate in activities aimed at assisting the seminary.

Those willing to actively join the group should contact Howahowa on 0999894332.

Spas opened its doors in 1985 and trains young people who aspire to become priests.
