The Seminary is experiencing another enrollment increase this year and will serve 160 seminarians for 2016-2017. The representative increase is 13% over last year. Of the 45 new seminarians, 18 are seminarians for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and one is from Bangladesh.
Opening week at the seminary will include campus tours, in which returning seminarians will pair with new seminarians and their families to tour the grounds and facilities. Group activities such as daily Mass and day trips are also planned during the first week. Fall classes for the College and Theology Division of Saint Charles Borromeo officially begin on Thursday, August 25, 2016.
Note: Founded in 1832, Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary has been forming men for priestly service in the Catholic Church for more than 180 years. This year, approximately 160 young men have answered God’s call to attend the Seminary to be formed after the heart of Jesus Christ. With the generosity of many, these young seminarians are able to successfully transform into the compassionate and loyal priests and inspiring leaders of tomorrow’s Church.
