This website is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary
under the title of the Immaculate Conception.
May all who enter the sacred halls of this seminary know and feel the embrace of her Immaculate Heart, echo her fiat to God's will for their lives, and find their identity and mission in the pierced, Sacred Heart of Jesus!
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death. Amen.
In its deepest identity the seminary is called to be, in its own way, a continuation in the church of the apostolic community gathered about Jesus, listening to his word, proceeding toward the Easter experience, awaiting the gift of the Spirit for the mission. Such an identity constitutes the normative ideal which stimulates the seminary in the many diverse forms and varied aspects which is assumes historically as a human institution, to find a concrete realization, faithful to the Gospel values from which it takes its inspiration and able to respond to the situations and needs of the times.
