Seminarians and Seminary Life

Men who study for the priesthood are called seminarians and attend seminaries. The root of these words comes from the words for seed and seedbed.


The time preparing to become a priest is an important time of growth. No man is born a priest, just as no man is born a disciple of the Lord. The men who respond to the call of the Lord come from diverse backgrounds, bringing with them their own unique gifts and talents that they can use to serve God. We invite you to read some of their stories and learn about the men who, God willing, will someday serve us as our future parish priests.
