This dissertation forms the argument that the concept of spirituality in the design of seminaries has always existed and has been met considerably, over the years, through the use of certain design principles, elements and spatial qualities, many of which are still relevant today in the formation of the catholic priest. In as much as it has been existent, a lot more can be done to increase that sense of spirituality in spaces using architectural elements. The design of seminaries in Uganda is no alien to concepts of spirituality but may be experienced in different ways in different spaces. Spirituality in spaces is realised formally and/or informally; it affects the psychological aspects of those spaces and the spatial experience of the users. The training in seminaries is intended to allow the person to withdraw and find balance and completion in the life that they have chosen and this can be enhanced by a catalogue of architectural interventions defined by material, lighting, environmental considerations, geometry, incorporation of historical data, relationships between and among buildings, among other aspects of design.
