Mission statement

The Bishop Simon Bruté College Seminary will work, in collaboration with Marian College, “to protect and develop the seeds of a priestly vocation, so that the students may more easily recognize it and be in a better position to respond to it” (Pastores Dabo Vobis, 63).

The formation Program will provide the human, cultural, and spiritual formation, along with the academic formation grounded in the study of philosophy and theology, which will serve as a solid foundation for the major seminary (PDV, 64).  As such, the program will inspire seminarians to:

  • Cultivate a life of prayer centered upon the Eucharist.
  • Live and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through their words and actions.
  • Honor Mary, the mother and model of the Church, and to live a life of virtue, love, and obedience based upon her example and guidance.
  • Develop an understanding of the teachings of the Catholic Church and a commitment to live according to these teachings.
  • Foster a deep respect for the human dignity of all people along with the human skills and sensitivity necessary for effective pastoral ministry.
