Support the Josephinum

A Legacy of Generosity

Forming young men with generous hearts to become the future shepherds of Christ’s flock has been the joy and the privilege of the Josephinum for well over a century.

As an independent seminary, the Josephinum receives no funding from Rome and is not staffed or operated by a particular diocese. Since the seminary’s beginning, providing priests to lovingly care for the Lord’s flock has required – and has brought forth – an abundance of generosity from the faithful, which has and continues to sustain its mission.
