Sacred Heart School of Theology
About Us

President's Message

Thank you for your interest in Sacred Heart School of Theology. Browsing our website, you will discover our unprecedented expertise in preparing men of all ages for Roman Catholic priesthood. Each seminarian is an impressive individual, and each has a unique vocation story. Their educational backgrounds, life and work experiences differ, but all have the same desire to become a living example of His love and presence, through the priesthood. They come from dioceses throughout the United States, and Canada, and many other countries. Our team of talented faculty and administrators has deep experience in helping these men respond to the Lord's call. We provide a rich environment for spiritual, human, intellectual and pastoral formation that meets the needs of today's diverse church. We are very proud of our graduates who serve as educated, virtuous and zealous priests .

While this is our primary mission, we also are committed to preparation of the laity for service to the Church and God's people through our Master of Arts program. We also prepare many priests and other religious from around the world for ministry in English-speaking environments through our English-as-a-Second-Language Program.

I invite you to look through our website, including a brief video featuring our students and faculty, for more detailed information about our mission, programs, facilities and community, and if you have any questions, please contact us.

Very Rev. Msgr. Ross Shecterle, S.T.L., Ph.D.
