Mission Statement

Sacred Heart School of Theology is a seminary owned and operated as an apostolate of the U.S. Province of the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which works with diocesan priests, men and women religious and laity in the seminary's mission.

The Seminary's primary purpose is the preparation of men of mature years and experience for Roman Catholic priesthood, both diocesan and religious, in accordance with the National Conference of Catholic Bishops' Program of Priestly Formation, and other related Church documents.

It also provides academic theological education for those in or preparing for other ministries in the Church and programs for those seeking personal faith enrichment.

Sacred Heart School of Theology strives to be a community responsive to the presence of the Holy Spirit, to individual talents and needs, and to challenges facing the Church and society, especially issues of justice and peace.
