Southern NH teens become seminarians
“Not only does seminary teach me things such as charity, service, love, meekness and humility, but it helps me to apply them in my daily life,” said Nimmo. “My classmates are there and I get to start my day off with an uplifting, happy topic that is able to carry me through the school day.”
“In order to be prepared to teach the people about the gospel, I first need to know what I am teaching,” he said, comparing seminary to a preparatory class for his future mission.
“It is so amazing to watch these kids grow, and I really can’t wait to see where they end up and where they go in life,” said Hagen.
“For them to have this moment together each morning gives them strength and power,” she explained. “It also gives them a factual basis for their faith.”
For Chase Hughes, 16, of Bedford, participating in seminary helps him lead a good life and expand his religious training. Hughes, who is a sophomore at Bishop Guertin High School, is enrolled in a new pilot program that allows him to attend seminary class online so that he can make it to school on time each day.
“Many people think that we are so different because of the standards we follow, but really that is all that is different,” she said. “We are teenagers too and we go through many of the same obstacles as others, we just overcome them in a different way.”
