Seminarians.pngI am thinking about seminary. What do I do now?

If you are considering a vocation, talk to your parish priest or the vocations director of your diocese. Learn more about discernment by visiting a seminary campus; the vocations director can help you make these arrangements.


What is formation?

In the journey toward the priesthood, there are four areas or dimensions of formation: spiritual, human, intellectual and pastoral. Seminarians strive to imitate Christ in each area, forming their lives in His image as they discern the priesthood through a life of study and prayer. Each seminarian has a formation advisor and a spiritual director who provide guidance and counsel throughout the discernment process.


Can I visit the Josephinum?

Yes! The Josephinum welcomes you to visit, either for a Live-In weekend or at any time during the year. To inquire about a visit or a Live-In weekend, please contact:
