Our Students Are Our Lifeblood
St. Peter’s Seminary’s primary mission is to form servant-leaders: priests, deacons and lay persons who are self-giving and life-giving. Since 1912 years, St. Peter’s Seminary has committed to fulfilling this mission through the educational and formational programs it offers. Our programs of formation for priesthood and lay leadership centre on the development of the total person – human, intellectual, spiritual and pastoral. The integration and harmonization of the formative aspects of programs enables all students, religious and lay, to be effective models and leaders for the Church.
- Within the Seminary community, the formation faculty, mandated by the bishop, strives to model Our Vision, to make it incarnate by leadership and example.
- As a Seminary community, we strive to pass on what we have received, proclaiming Christ through the living tradition of the Church and fostering a Eucharistic vision of community. In this context, the preparation for priesthood and lay leadership focuses on the development of the total person – human, intellectual, spiritual and pastoral.
- The formation for pastoral service acknowledges interdependence. We, the Seminary community, willingly cooperate with others in fulfilling our Vision and Mission. In openness to the world, we strive to be faithful to the Church’s preferential option for the poor.
