Our seminary program supports young men seriously discerning a religious calling to serve as missionary priests or Brothers. Your student life will balance academics, formation activities, spiritual life, sports and recreation. Liturgy and prayer provide the framework for each day. As part of your student formation group, you will grow in your spirituality, service and maturity, under the direction of your spiritual advisor.
