Assumption Seminary is a bilingual and multi-cultural community of priestly formation. This seminary exists for the personal, spiritual, theological and ministerial preparation of diocesan seminarians for the Roman Catholic Church. Assumption Seminary’s goal is to enable Christ-centered men to grow and develop as collaborative and culturally sensitive pastoral leaders committed to the gospel.
Forming priests as leaders in the image of Christ the Good Shepherd for an evangelizing Church.
The Society of Saint Sulpice, whose primary mission is to form candidates for the Roman Catholic priesthood, came to Assumption Seminary at the request of Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller. In the Sulpician tradition, seminarians, faculty, and formators comprise a formational community, grounded in Jesus Christ and primarily directed toward diocesan priestly service in the Church.
“O Jesus, living in Mary, come and live in your servants, in the spirit of your holiness, in the fullness of your power, in the perfection of your ways, in the truth of your virtues, in the communion of your mysteries. Overcome every oppressing force, in your Spirit, for the glory of the Father. Amen.”
