Two East Anglia seminarians receive theology degrees

Two Diocese of East Anglia seminarians have received BA degrees from the University of Birmingham as part of their studies at Oscott College seminary.

On December 5, Peter Ho, a fourth-year seminarian, achieved the significant milestone by receiving a BA degree in Fundamental Catholic Theology from the University of Birmingham. Alongside Peter, Anthony Reilly also earned the same degree, although he was not able to attend the ceremony.

This accomplishment is typically awarded to Year 3 seminarians who have completed their initial three years at Oscott College.

The event, held at the Great Hall of the University of Birmingham, was graced by numerous esteemed academics, including Fr Andrew Robinson, Oscott’s Dean of Theology, and Fr Guy Nicholls, tutor in liturgy at Oscott.

The attainment of this degree represents a pivotal moment in seminarians’ journey, marking the half-way point towards their ordination to the priesthood. We will continue to uphold these dedicated individuals in our prayers as they progress in their vocation.
