Welcome to Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary

The Pope St. John XXIII Seminary community is committed to our founding mission: the human, spiritual, academic and pastoral formation of candidates aged 30 and older. Our unique institution is the only American seminary for these mature candidates administered by diocesan priests. For more than five decades, candidates have been accepted from various professional backgrounds; such as law, medicine, business, teaching, sales, banking, social work and military service. The diversity of life experiences shared by these mature seminarians enriches both the Seminary community and their future ministries in the Church.

Feb. 13, 2019 – Most Rev. Robert J. McManus of the Diocese of Worcester joined our community Wednesday night as presider at Mass for the Institution of Acolyte.  Family and friends along with priests from representative dioceses came to support nine men who were appointed acolytes as part of their advancement in Seminary formation.

Beloved Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary spiritual director, Fr. Paul P. Gilmartin, S.J., was called home to the Lord on February 4, 2019. Fr. Gilmartin served the Seminary for 25+ years from the 1970’s through the 1990’s.  Many of the Pope St. John XXIII alumni benefited from, and were inspired by, his leadership and humble service to God.  The Gilmartin Room on campus was dedicated as a testament to his strong influence, and now serves as a room for current students to relax, reflect and appreciate the essence of Fr. Gilmartin’s work.

Daily Reflection

Jesus made Himself like the grain of wheat that falls to the ground and dies to give life. Our hope springs from that love-filled life.

-Pope Francis
