Dear Friends, 

 

I hope you have an enjoyable visit to the seminary website. 

 

The Redemptoris Mater Archdiocesan Missionary Seminary is an international house of formation preparing men to become priests for the New Evangelization of the Church and for the missio ad gentes. 

 

At the seminary, the four dimensions of priestly formation (human, intellectual, pastoral and spiritual) are woven together in a program of formation that prepares men to become priests and shepherds after the heart of Christ. 

 

Thank you for coming by and enjoy your visit!

 

Pray for us!

PRIESTLY FORMATION

 

At Redemptoris Mater Seminary all seminarians are prepared for the priesthood in accord with the four essential pillars of priestly formation, namely human, intellectual, spiritual and pastoral. 

While the intellectual formation of the seminarians takes place mainly at St. John’s Seminary, in the House of Formation seminarians learn about obedience and discipline, grow in the knowledge of the Fathers and the History of the Church, and acquire the necessary freedom to become shepherds and to exercise the priesthood with authority and prophetic wisdom. 

As part of the international and missionary component of the seminarians’ formation, all candidates for the priesthood are trained to overcome isolation and individualism, and acquire a more universal scope of love of God and service to all men by being sent in mission for a period of three years in preparation for their ordination as priests.

Attendance to a local Neocatechumenal community in Boston is a distinguishing mark and an essential component of the formation of all seminarians: as a member of a community of lay people, the seminarians are accompanied in the discernment process of their vocation and lay the foundations for the continuous formation to the faith, which will follow after seminary formation.
