We are an institute of higher education, accredited by the State of Connecticut, that offers an Associate of Arts degree to prepare seminarians for their evangelizing mission as priests in today’s world. Following the principles of integral formation as laid out in the document Pastores Dabo Vobis by Pope John Paul II, we not only strive to promote academic excellence but also a deep spiritual life, solid character formation, and a deep sensitivity to others’ needs according to Christian charity.


Community Picture : Fall 2013

Our students are all novices and religious of the Catholic Congregation of the Legionaries of Christ, coming from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Currently there are members from over 10 different nationalities living together in community.


Both the young men in formation and the formation team are committed to reaching out to the local community in many ways, such as: youth and family work, parish and city missions, catechesis and the formation of catechists, open lecture series on cultural and religious topics, and concerts performed by the seminary band and choir.
