SACRED HEART SEMINARY
Poonamallee, Chennai 600 056


The seminarians would be provided with a handbook containing the basic guidelines concerning the formation process in the seminary.

However, it is good to take note of the following guidelines, which are intended to create an ambiance for formation.

The use of cell phones, having a personal bank account and the possession of ATM Card are not permitted in our seminary. A violation of this rule would entail a serious sanction.

The seminarians are encouraged to present themselves well in dress and behaviour. Hence, seminarians are permitted to wear regular jeans. However, they are discouraged from wearing other varieties of jeans.

They have to be have a regular haircut and be well groomed.

The philosophers are not permitted to possess I pod (audio and video), I pad, and personal computers. However, they can possess a radio or a tape recorder with external speakers and not with ear phones.

The theologians could possess an audio I pod, but not a video I pod. They are permitted to use ear phones in the rooms, but not outside their rooms to enable them to have a healthy interaction with the member of the community.

The language of the community is English, and the language of the apostolate is Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu. The seminarians are encouraged to speak in English to create an inclusive community. However, there are enough opportunities for seminarians to develop their language of apostolate.
