St. Patrick's Seminary is located in Menlo Park, California, where it prepares men for priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church.
St. Patrick's Seminary was founded on a vision over one hundred years ago. Throughout its history it has been staffed by the priests of the Society of Saint Sulpice and by others who share their vision of priestly formation. St. Patrick's Seminary has prepared more than 2,000 priests who have served the people of God in the western United States and Pacific Rim.
Through the guidance of the Archdiocese of San Francisco - in association with its other sponsoring Bishops, St. Patrick's Seminary provides a program of priestly formation with a particular emphasis on preparing seminarians for pastoral service in parishes and other diocesan ministries. Religious communities also enroll candidates for education and training.
St. Patrick's Seminary is fully accredited as a graduate educational institution by the Association of Theological Schools, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and the Congregation for Catholic Education in Rome.
Rev. Gladstone H. Stevens, S.S
It is a great honor for me to serve as the 16th President/Rector of St. Patrick's Seminary & University. The mission of this venerable institution has remained constant over the course of its history; namely, to form priests according to the heart of Jesus Christ and worthy of God's holy Church. This mighty work requires the active collaboration of all committed Catholic Christians, including our wonderful faculty and staff and all those in the wider community who care about the future of the priesthood.
