Morning Star Regional Seminary and Morning Star College are two Institutions owned and managed by the Bengal Catholic Priests’ Training Institute, registered on 10.1.1979 under the West Bengal Societies Act XXVI of 1961.

Morning Star Regional Seminary was established on June 4, 1968, as the Calcutta Archdiocesan Seminary. On August 6, 1971, the B.A. Department of the Seminary was affiliated to the University of Calcutta, with the name of “Morning Star College”. The first course of Theology began in 1972. In May 1974, Morning Star became a Regional Seminary to serve the dioceses of Bengal Region, namely, Asansol, Bagdogra, Baruipur, Calcutta, Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri, Krishnagar and Raiganj. The first batch of deacons from this seminary were ordained in December 1975.

The residential staff of the seminary is mainly drawn from the diocesan clergy of the Region and the Society of Jesus, Calcutta Province. Though the Seminary is primarily meant for the formation of priests for the West Bengal Region, it also caters to the seminarians of the neighbouring dioceses.

The Seminary has three departments :
B.A., Philosophy and Theology. The Three-year B.A. Degree Course is combined with the Philosophy Course. The theologians in their fourth year, after completing their comprehensive exam by early March proceed to finish the Pastoral Course of two months’ duration before leaving for their respective dioceses. Rome has finally approved that the department of Theology of Morning Star College be affiliated to the Faculty of Theology of the Pontifical Institute of Philosophy and Religion also called Jnana-Deepa Vidyapeeth in Pune, for a period of five years on experimental basis. The Congregation for Catholic Education issued this decree on 25th November 2002. The students now qualifying in the B. Th. Examinations will be awarded with the B. Th. Degree from JDV.

For the B. A. Degree, the qualification will be awarded by the West Bengal State University, to which the College is now affilliated, after automatic transfer of affilliation from Calcutta University recently.
OUR VISION FOR MORNING STAR
We together commit ourselves to form SPIRITUAL, COMPETENT and DEDICATED ministers of Christ for evangelising the people of our region in their varied, cultural, religious and social milieu.

May Mary, Morning Star, the patroness of this seminary and beloved mother of all priests, guide us on the path of Christ, the true light of the world and keep on inspiring us by the motto of the seminary - “Let your Light Shine”.
