Ephrem’s Theological College is a Centre of theological formation,
inaugurated at Satna on 3rd July 1992, the Feast of St. Thomas, the
Apostle. This Centre is intended to impart priestly formation to those
who wish to serve primarily in the Syro-Malabar mission dioceses and
the Religious Congregations in North India. This theological college
has been started as a Satna diocesan institution but with the active
support and co-operation of several Bishops and Religious Congregations.
However, at present, it is known as Synodal Mission Seminary, and
thereby, it is run by Syro-Malabar Major Archi-episcopal Synod guided
by Major Archbishop, Mar Cardinal George Alencherry. The Theology
Institute, offering a degree of Bachelor of Theology, aims at a theological
formation in tune with the ecclesial tradition of St. Thomas Christians
in the context of the North Indian mission.
