Petit Seminaire College Saint Martial
One of the several ministries of the Spiritans in Haiti is the Petit Séminaire Collège Saint Martial (PSCSM). The Petit Séminaire Collège Saint Martial is located centrally at Port-au-Prince and it is actually a Catholic school that was established in the year 1865. Originally the PSCSM was a petit séminaire or minor seminary meant only for the candidates to priesthood. 7 years after its establishment, College St. Martial started operating as an open school which has, ever since then, provided quality education to several generations of Haitians. From 1865 to date, well over 300 Spiritans missionaries that include brothers and priests, have ministered and worked at the school.
Before the earthquake of January 12, 2010, the Petit Séminaire Collège Saint Martial operated in three sections - Kindergarten consisting of 200 students, primary school consisting of 760 students and secondary school consisting of 800 students. It was also the administrative headquarters in Haiti for the Spiritans as well as a formation center for young seminarians. However, the earthquake badly damaged the Petit Séminaire Collège Saint Martial. The primary section collapsed completely. The chapel was also damaged. The Spiritans of TransCanada created the St. Martial Fund and Earthquake Fund to revive the school as well as to help the entire nation.
