The Sharing Education and Learning for Life (SELL) Resource Team conducted an introductory workshop at St. Augustine’s Millenium Major Seminary (SAMS) in Tamale.
The event which took place on Saturday, October 23, was to give the seminarians undergoing their priestly formation first-hand knowledge of SELL as a programme for young adults on life-shaping issues. They were taken through some sessions that enabled them to recognize what they think about in relation to some issues of concern in society.
Having deepened their awareness of the need to sustain all life forms, Nyaaba Batetekem Achagwe Amos, in his fourth year at the seminary said, “the workshop has helped me to know that, in my own little way I can do something to sustain my environment rather than putting blame on my traditional or political leaders … it has also helped me to know myself better; my weaknesses and strengths have been made very clear to me.”
Cancheon Anselm who is in his third year said, “It has helped me in my relationship with other people who do not share the same opinions or faith with me. I have been enlightened to know the care of the environment is a collective responsibility and not only for people in authority.”
“… it will enable me to reflect deeply about myself, thereby making me accept the way I am,” he added.
Fifty-five (55) seminarians participated in the workshop.
