That was the seminary in 2004. Eighteen years later they are finally completing the building. Take a look!
As the finishing touches are put on the cementing and painting of the exterior, the driveway is slowly being paved. This month a local business donated the use of machinery for grading and compacting the driveway and funds are being raised in the parishes to buy the paving blocks that are being laid (they are about 10 dollars USD per square meter, and 2000 square meters are needed):
The fire road around the perimeter of the large property was also re-graded. It’s important to maintain and improve this road to protect against grass fires in the dry season or during sugar cane harvests. When properly compacted and finished it will also be a lovely loop for the seminarians to use when exercising.
