Seminarian Formation Program

“I will give you shepherds after my own heart.” Jeremiah 3:15

The Program for Priestly Formation: Fifth Edition, from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and St. John Paul II’s Pastores dabo vobis are the foundational documents upon which Conception Seminary College’s program of Seminary Formation is built. Interpreted via the 1500-year-old Benedictine tradition and the legacy of Conception Abbey, CSC strives to form men of community and conversion.

The Seminary Formation program is centered around forming seminarians in the four pillars of priestly formation:

  • Human Formation
  • Spiritual Formation
  • Intellectual Formation
  • Pastoral Formation

Upon completion of the Seminary Formation program, seminarians will have developed a strong personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church, enabling them to further their vocational discernment, engage in graduate theological studies, and advance to the final stage of priestly formation.
