Visit of Phelim Malumo to the University-Studium Theologicum Salesianum in Jerusalem

Theologicum_Salesianum_01Dear Confrere,
This morning I accompanied our Theology students (10) to the University. The University-Studium Theologicum Salesianum- is run by Salesians. It is a Pontifical University affiliated to Rome. Presently it has 62 students in total. A few lay students also. The M.Afr have ten Theology students, 4 in the first year, 1 in the second yr, 1 also in the third year and 4 Deacons in the fourth year. Our students come from various countries-Zambia, Burkina Faso, Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda and Ghana. The Rector at St Anne, Dominique teaches Church History. I had also the opportunity to following the morning’s lectures including, Trinity class, taught by Bill, our confrere. The College Principal is from India-Salesian and the Administrator is a Kenyan. Our Theologians go for classes from Monday till Saturday, and they have to walk a distance of about 45min from St Anne (East Jerusalem-Old City-Arab & Palestinian area) to West Jerusalem (New City-Jewish area). Today, at 11.00, we took a short break from a lecture in Spiritual Theological to bid farewell to the Ghanaian Cardinal-Peter Turkson, who had come for a visit. It was a good to see where our students learn, the environment and to follow a few lectures with them. Our Deacon, and Zambian confere, Emmanuel Mubanga is studying at the college. He is appearing in a few pictures I have attached.
God Bless and May the Souls of all the Faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, Rest in Eternal Peace.
Phelim Malumo, M.Afr
