St. Joseph's Seminary, located in Dunwoodie, NY, stands as the center of formation for the priesthood for the Archdiocese of New York, the Diocese of Brooklyn, and the Diocese of Rockville Centre.
The Joy of The Gospel
"The Joy of the Gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness. With Christ joy is constantly born anew." - Pope Francis
In Persona Christi
As seminarians preparing for the priesthood, Jesus must always remain at the center of our lives. He must be our daily encouragement, our continual focus, and the one we always aspire to follow.
Behold Your Mother
"Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin Mary too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did and if anyone does not wish to have Mary Immaculate for his mother, he will not have Christ for his brother."
-Saint Maximilian Kolbe
Our community includes over 100 seminarians, hailing from around the globe, some studying for the parish priesthood, others for religious orders or the Eastern Catholic Churches. But we all have one thing in common: a desire to give our lives in service to Holy Mother Church.
