Since its founding in 1888, more than 1,900 priests have received their formation and education at the Pontifical College Josephinum. Ordained alumni are active today in 48 states in the United States and in 18 foreign countries. Similarly, our alumni who are members of the lay faithful are making profound contributions to the life of the Church through a commitment to family, distinguished work in their professions, and witness to service.
