The Crucifix was gifted to the seminary in the year 2006, by the Metropolitan of Onitsha Province, His Grace, Most Rev. Dr. Valerian Maduka Okeke, and the Archbishop of Onitsha Archdiocese. The crucifix was intended to be placed above the tabernacle of the Bigard Main chapel, but by the time the crucifix arrived, the chapel had already been completely renovated with everything in place. The management however, chose to build a shrine of the Cross outside the chapel, in a clear and aesthetic view of anyone walking the Seminary main avenue. It also situates parallel to the Grotto of the Blessed Virgin Mary through the avenue leading to the Chapel.
