May the Peace of Christ be with you!
My name is Fr. Brendan, OSB and I serve as the President-Rector of Conception Seminary College. I am glad you are visiting our website and learning more about who we are and what we do at CSC.
Conception Seminary College is a Roman Catholic Seminary College aiding men in the discernment of a priestly vocation and preparing them for graduate theological studies. Since 1886, CSC has been about the ministry of priestly formation.
Caritas Christi urget nos!—The love of Christ impels us—is the motto of CSC. In this our 130th year, our seminarians continue to come to a faraway place so that they may set out into the depths of priestly formation. Whether studying, growing in self-understanding, deepening their life of prayer, or serving others, the seminarians of CSC are urged by Christ’s love to become the men God calls them to be.
Rooted in the Benedictine spirituality that guides Conception Abbey, the monks, faculty, and staff of CSC seek to form seminarians who value life in community and the hard work of conversion. Through our daily rhythms of prayer, study, and community and through their regular meetings with their chaplains and spiritual directors the seminarians of CSC enter the depths of their person and their relationships with God, discovering more and more who and whose they are.
Whether you are visiting our website because you are exploring your own vocation, or because you want to support the work of CSC through your prayer and generosity, or simply due to your own curiosity our greeting is the same: Welcome!
