Saint Francis de Sales Seminary

Founded in 1845, and built on this site 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 priests for the faithful, for yesterday, today and tomorrow. Built because of Christ, by Christ, for Christ. 

Built upon Him.
