Our Vision

The Seminary is a place not only of academic formation but also human formation.
For this reason, the Seminary is committed to:

  • Provide and promote, “Intellectual formation which has its own characteristics, but it is also deeply connected with, and indeed can be seen as a necessary expansion of, both human and spiritual formation” (Pastorem Dabo Vobis. Paulist Press, 1993 par.51)
  • Increase and expand the quality of the courses we are already doing and the facilities we use.
  • Continue to be open to serve other congregations including women religious.
  • Explore the possibility of using our facilities for the benefit of the laity.
