Art and literature play a vital role in the priestly ministry. An integral training in priestly formation demands due academic competence and proficiency in arts and literature. Every art draws us closer to the Divine. The Cultural Academy in St. Thomas Apostolic seminary meets the requirements of the literary and artistic aspect of priestly formation. The Cultural Academy organizes the academies of Feast days, Home day arts fest, and weekly academies of extempore speeches.
The literary contributions of the philosophy students are collected and published in a Magazine known as Breeza. Another important activity of the Cultural Academy is the Kerygma, the annual Inter Seminary Homily and Elocution competition. The Cultural Academy in St. Thomas Apostolic Seminary provides the seminarians with myriad of opportunities to introspect and fine-tune their God-given talents so as to rejuvenate their integral and holistic growth.
