The Motto

Home   /   The Motto

The PAROC Research Institute has received “Pastores dabo vobis” as motto. The dictum has been imbibed from the motto of the mother institute, Marymatha Major Seminary, Trichur. Extracted from a famous Jeremiahn text, “Then I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding” (Jer. 3, 15), the motto of the Institute, expresses its vision and mission: research and formation in pastoral studies of the laity, religious and clergy. While the seminary focuses on the formation of the candidates to the priesthood, the PAROC functions with a research perspective and aiming at the formation of lay-religious-clergy leaders.
