At St. Joseph College Seminary our mission is to provide an environment which assists young men to answer God’s call to the Roman Catholic priesthood. The need for expertise in ministering and maintaining pastoral leadership is of great importance in today’s world. The United States in particular is experiencing a shortage of priests.
We are responding to the call by preparing leaders who are grounded in faith and educated in programs of spiritual, intellectual, pastoral and human formation. As the Lord said “the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.” The Archdiocese of Chicago needs faith-filled priests to serve God and his people. In addition, as one of the few college seminaries in the nation, we fill the need to form men from dioceses across the United States including Milwaukee, WI, San Bernardino, CA, and others.
Our balanced formation program affords candidates the opportunity to explore their discernment. The spiritual, human, and pastoral components are guided by the Holy See and the National Conference of Catholic Bishops as outlined in the encyclical, Pastores Dabo Vobis, the Program of Priestly Formations, published by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (Fourth Edition, 1992). They are implemented by our faculty of five resident priests and the formation team.
