Formation

The formation at Assumption is an ongoing process of personal conversion and growth. The professional men and women who are members of the faculty at Assumption Seminary are enthused and committed to help prepare Christ-centered men to be the pastoral and dedicated priests for our Church of today. Seminarians come to Assumption from the Archdiocese of San Antonio, other Texas dioceses and from dioceses throughout the United States. Many of the seminarians are originally from other countries. Following their formation at Assumption, they will be fully prepared and ready to serve in any U.S. diocese. Since the beginning of the 2000’s, enrollment has averaged 50 seminarians per year compared to an average of 30 seminarians a year through the 1990’s. Based on this growth, Assumption is positioning for larger enrollments in the years to come. With the continuing increases in Catholic population, it becomes even more important to be prepared for the future.
