Forming Men of Communion

The vision of Conception Seminary College is this: to be a stable community, seeking the will of Christ, and conforming our lives to Him. We create this intentional community in a deserted place that is a source for virtue and readying shepherds to nurture the Church.

In every age, the Lord calls young men to serve him as priests. It is a sacred duty, a profound honor. We are men of prayer, intellectual humility, and critical thinking. We are men for others and have a passion to evangelize. We cherish self-knowledge, our relationship with Jesus Christ, and our beloved Catholic Faith. We are Men of Conception. We are sons of God and sons of Thunder. We are brothers and servants of our Lord Jesus Christ.
