Institute for Ongoing Clergy Formation

Because the Church believes that “it is particularly important to be aware of and to respect the intrinsic link between formation before ordination to the priesthood and formation after ordination,” (Pastores Dabo Vobis, n. 71) the Institute for Ongoing Clergy Formation has been established to help priests progress in their generous response to the gift God has bestowed on them. With access to theological, educational, and pastoral resources, as well as trained faculty and staff, The Saint Paul Seminary provides the essential human, intellectual, spiritual and pastoral formation necessary to ensure priests are equipped to build up the Body of Christ in our parishes, dioceses, and throughout the world.

"I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that you have through the imposition of my hands."
- 2 Timothy 1:6
