Saint Francis de Sales Seminary

Built in 1855, because a bishop was inspired to make this place holy.  Built by hundreds of workers, immigrants, priests and seminarians, brick by brick.  Built for the formation of thousands of priests, for the faithful, for yesterday, today and tomorrow. Built because of Christ, by Christ, for Christ. 

Built upon Him.


Enjoy the film, Heartbeat of My Soul, which premiered at our 2018 Annual Seminary Dinner.
