Message from the Rector

I have great confidence that the Holy Spirit continues to call men to share, through the sacrament of Holy Orders, in the one priesthood of Jesus Christ.

The Saint Paul Seminary exists to form these men into priests whose hearts are conformed to that of Christ the Good Shepherd. As missionary disciples, they will both lead and serve God’s people.

I welcome those who feel called to the priesthood to discover all that we have to offer here, and to respond with generous faith to the Lord’s call. Together we will respond to the Lord’s invitation and send joyful, Catholic leaders into our world.

Rev. Joseph C. Taphorn
