Cathedral Seminary is a place where young men discern, with the Church, a vocation to the priesthood. The Seminary’s mission is to provide an environment that forms men to be committed disciples of Christ who are free to respond to God’s call to the priesthood, including the call to celibate life.

Seminary

A vocation to the priesthood is discovered and accepted within the seminary community. Seminarians, faculty, and staff work together to form a true formative community, sharing a common responsibility, with due regard to the duties and the office entrusted to each member. (From The Gift of the Priestly Vocation, no. 3)

Vocation

“Come follow me…”

– Mt 4:18

 

God calls each and every one of us to be holy – to know, love, and serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him forever in heaven. God calls some men to live out their holiness in a particular way – as priests. Is Jesus calling you to follow Him as a priest?
