Dear Friends,
The Redemptoris Mater Archdiocesan Missionary Seminary of Boston is an
international house forming priests for the New Evangelization of the Church and the
“Missio ad Gentes.”
Our seminarians discovered their vocation in the Neocatechumenal Way, “an itinerary
of Catholic formation valid for our society and our time” (St. John Paul II) and, once
ordained priests, will serve in the Archdiocese of Boston and anywhere the archbishop
will want to send them.

Here you can meet our seminarians and register to remain connected to the seminary,
including to receive the seminary newsletter and other communications.


Enjoy your visit and pray for us!

Very Rev. Antonio F. Medeiros

Our History

The Redemptoris Mater Seminary was opened in September 2005 and officially erected by

Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley, OFM Cap, on

March 25, 2006.
Encouraged by the example of St. John Paul II, who had opened the firstRedemptoris Mater Seminary in Rome in 1987, Cardinal O’Malley opened the
seminary to form priests for the New Evangelization of the Church and the Missio ad Gentes.

The seminary prepares priests to serve the Church locally and in missionary outposts answering the call of the Second Vatican Council for the need of a
better distribution of the clergy. Priests formed at the Redemptoris Mater Seminary receive a grace from God to look for the lost sheep and invite them
to discover the mercy of God through the maternal care of the Church. 

Our priests serve currently in the Archdiocese of Boston as pastors and parochial vicars, and others have already been sent in mission by the Cardinal.


Our Priests

Priests formed at the Redemptoris Mater Seminary are currently serving the Church and God’s people in various parishes across the Archdiocese of Boston, including East Boston, Chelsea, Revere, Lynn, Marlborough, Lowell, Lawrence, Jamaica Plain, and Brockton. Others have been sent in mission, including to the U.S. Virgin Islands.
