Since the year 2000, 120 men have been ordained to the priesthood from Assumption. These men are spread out in dioceses all over Texas and far beyond. All of my colleagues on the formation faculty are happy for them. These newly-ordained men have worked hard in order to be well-prepared for the ministerial priesthood. They are just beginning.

Assumption has a fine formation faculty, and we are happy to serve San Antonio and several other dioceses that have chosen us over the years for the religious and cultural experience we offer here. This year we have 85 men from thirteen dioceses in different programs ranging from college philosophy to graduate theology.

We ask Our Lady, Assumed into heaven, to pray that every man who has answered the call to be in seminary grow into the image of her Son, Christ the Good Shepherd.

Assumption Seminary, a blessing to the Church!

Assumption Seminary is indeed a blessing to the people of the Archdiocese of San Antonio and to those called to the priesthood from throughout the United States and many parts of the world. All who have come before me, archbishops, seminary administration, faculty, staff, and most importantly seminarians have built an inspired foundation for the preparation of men to serve the people of God. Assumption Seminary has established itself in an international leadership role in the formation of future priests who are called to minister in the multicultural reality that requires a special understanding and respect for the diversity that will continue to be the Church of the future.
