The Holy Spirit Seminary (Chinese: 聖神修院) is a Catholic seminary in Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong.

History[edit]

The seminary descends from the "Regional Seminary for South China", which was transferred to Hong Kong in 1964 as China no longer sent seminarians at that point. The Jesuits, Salesians and Franciscans have been involved in it.[1]

On Saturday, September 25, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI named Professor Anna Kai-Yung Chan, a Professor at Holy Spirit Seminary's College of Theology and Philosophy, as one of the papally-appointed Experts to serve at the upcoming October 2012 13th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization.[2]
