The Saint Paul Seminary

A nonprofit organization

The Saint Paul Seminary is a regional center of formation for Catholics, including seminarians, diaconate candidates, lay ministers, theologians, Catholic school leaders and clergy.

We are Joyful: We radiate a deep, abiding joy that flows from the lived Gospel, a certainty of God’s love and a gratitude for the opportunity to learn and serve the Body of Christ. That joy is the unmistakable sign of the presence of God – and it makes the ultimate witness.

We are Catholic: We impart the full deposit of the faith – a rock-solid foundation for an age of relativism – nurturing Catholics who are grounded in tradition and steeped in the sacraments.

We are Leaders: We train for servant leadership. Our graduates lead with humility, kindness and courage. They are prepared to make hard choices with sensitivity and clarity of mission. They are the kind of leaders who lift others up along the way.

We need your support.

"Even as our world continues to deal with challenges no previous generation has faced, I am evermore gratified and inspired by our seminarians currently preparing for the priesthood. The struggles of this current age require little to no introduction, but the solutions start right here in the Twin Cities. They come in the form of our priests, deacons and lay leaders who are being formed at The Saint Paul Seminary."
