Treasure Of Sacred Art Of St. Joseph's Seminary

  Founded in 1728 by Jesuit missionaries, St. Joseph’s Seminary has cultivated numerous outstanding Catholic clergy in the course of the last three centuries, maintained a close relationship with Macao’s social development and made positive contributions to local cultural, educational, artistic and charitable undertakings.

  St. Joseph’s Seminary houses a great number of religious artefacts, e.g. books and documents, oil paintings, icons, liturgical vestments and vessels, etc. In order to give the public an opportunity to appreciate these historical collections, the Cultural Affairs Bureau of the Macao SAR Government has collaborated with the Seminary and the Catholic Diocese of Macao in establishing the Treasure of Sacred Art of St. Joseph’s Seminary.
