For Ongoing Formation
Those preparing to be ordained deacons within our Diocese are formed through the Seminary via the four pillars of formation: human, spiritual, academic and pastoral. For more information, visit the Office of Deacons page.
“Our Seminary is truly an icon of the heart of the Church here on Long Island. Not only does it reflect the many cultures and traditions that make up this multifaceted island from Brooklyn to Queens to Nassau and Suffolk, it also reflects the richness of the life of the Church both in her celebration of mysteries and in the variety of the spiritual forces that shape our lives and guide our future. Here at the Seminary, which truly can be called ‘Mary’s House,’ one encounters the Lord. One encounters Mary, the Mother of the Church, who under the title of the Immaculate Conception watches over this Seminary and indeed all of Long Island.”
