Formation Program

Young men come to Cardinal Glennon College Seminary to discern a call to the priesthood of Jesus Christ.  The College Seminary bases its program of formation on the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation of Pope John Paul II, Pastores dabo vobis (1992); on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Program of Priestly Formation, Fifth Edition (2006); and on the expectations which tradition and experience have shown to be beneficial for this growth.  By admission into Cardinal Glennon College Seminary, the seminarian will be responsible for participating in the basic components—the four pillars—of priestly formation developed in Pastores dabo vobishuman, spiritual, intellectual and pastoral formation.May Crowning Saturday RecreationSeminarian Studying
