Vocations

St. Charles Borromeo Junior Seminary – Itaga

St. Charles Borromeo Junior Seminary is the junior seminary for the Archdiocese of Tabora. It is a place where vocation to the priesthood is reared and nurtured in young boys who are still in their secondary level education.

As early as 1908 St. Charles Borromeo junior seminary was opened at Mugala, Ushirombo, and later on shifted to Itaga, Tabora. This was to give to the then Vicariate of Tabora the first three priests namely Fr. Fidelis Luziga, Fr. Raphael Kavula and Fr. Simon Makumulo who were ordained priest on August 15, 1928.

For years, since its foundation, St. Charles Borromeo Junior Seminary – Itaga has endeavoured to live up to Christ’s command: “Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations…” (Mt 28:19).

The Propaedeutic Seminary

Archbishop Mario A. Mgulunde Propaedeutic Seminary

This is the place that accommodates young men who are willing and aspiring to undergo priestly training in order to serve in the future as catholic priests and notably for the Archdiocese of Tabora. The Vatican II document on the training of priests (Optatam Totius) stresses that:

“To provide a more solid foundation for the students’ spiritual formation and enable them to decide upon their vocation with full deliberation, it will rest with the Bishops to set apart a suitable interval of time for a more intensive spiritual preparation.”

Catholic Bishops in Tanzania unanimously decided that a full year of solid training be made obligatory for all candidates before entering major seminary. It is during this one year that those who aspire for priesthood in the Archdiocese of Tabora stay in the propaedeutic seminary. The seminary is named after the former archbishop of Tabora, His Grace Mario A. Mgulunde (1985 – 2006).
