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.

Saint Francis de Sales Seminary

Our main building was erected in 1855. The gold cross atop our cupola quickly became a point of navigation for sailors trying to reach the safety of Milwaukee's harbor. Today, the cross remains a point of spiritual navigation for men seeking the way to serve the Lord as his priests.
