We pursue this mission through the first-class academic resources of the University of Saint Thomas, through a systematic formation in Christian character, and through a traditional Catholic program of spiritual growth. We are Catholic and proud of it!At Saint John Vianney and the University of Saint Thomas, 126 seminarians are gaining an outstanding foundation in Philosophy and Theology. A four-year program of spiritual conferences and individual spiritual direction help seminarians grow strong in their Catholic faith and vocational discernment.
A great Seminary. A great University. Saint John Vianney College Seminary is located on the campus of the University of Saint Thomas, near the banks of the Mississippi River in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
Since our founding in 1968, 386 Vianney alumni have been ordained to the Catholic priesthood.
However, seminarians don't need to be sure about priesthood to enter seminary. They only need to be sure about devoting their gifts and energy to God's will for their future. And they have a great time doing it! They enjoy intramural sports, service projects and extracurricular activities with other students on campus, together with the educational and financial aid resources the University of Saint Thomas has to offer them. They receive a full college and seminary experience at Saint John Vianney. Seminarians have the privilege of growing closer to Jesus Christ through daily Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, retreats, and personal prayer.
Currently 23 Catholic dioceses and archdioceses from throughout the United State send their college seminarians to Saint John Vianney. They have come to trust our academic rigor, our sound formation program and our faithfulness to the teachings of the Catholic Church.
