St. Mary's Seminary prepares men to be priests for thirteen dioceses in Texas, New Mexico, South Carolina and the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter. Our beautiful campus also hosts the largest formation program in the United States for permanent deacons and it is the campus for the Graduate Theology School of the University of St. Thomas.
While the seminarians prepare to serve the Church as priests, they rely on your prayers and financial support. Each of these men is sponsored by a diocese which pays for the majority of his expenses. Since this does not cover all the cost of running St. Mary’s, your support is vital to keep this seminary operating.
A seminarian’s formation requires the support of many. We ask you to pray for vocations to the priesthood but we also need your financial support for the priesthood. Please consider making a donation online or through the mail at the
