Message from the Rector

The Saint Paul Seminary is the heart of the local Church, preparing and forming men for the priesthood and to be the light of Christ for the people of God. The seminary is necessary for priestly formation since it provides essential training and development after the model of Jesus Christ who was teacher, priest, and shepherd.

The Saint Paul Seminary prepares men for priesthood by instilling in them an abiding priestly identity and an ardent desire for priestly ministry while forming in them the true heart of a shepherd.

I invite and welcome those men who have heard and answered God’s call to priesthood to The Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity to become a light of Christ!

Msgr. Aloysius R. Callaghan
Rector and Vice President
