This past May, the Class of 2019 completed their studies at Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary. A climactic experience, for sure! Each man concluded his obligations in Weston, MA and opened a new door, journeying back to his respective diocese to be ordained a Roman Catholic priest by his Bishop.  The Seminary community will miss their presence, but we are especially proud of their new role in the world, as men of God and for God, and for His church throughout the United States.  
 

In June, 2019, the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) Board of Commissioners renewed Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary’s accreditation status for 10 years, until spring, 2029. The Board made its decision based on the report of a four member ATS team that visited PSJS from February 25 to 28, 2019.

Members of the Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary Class of 2020 took their Oath of Fidelity and Profession of Faith on March 19, 2019.  

The ceremony occurred during Evening Prayer and is a necessary step prior to ordination to the Transitional Diaconate.  It documents the seminarian's willingness to uphold the teachings of the Catholic Church in the ministry he exercises. This year, welcomed as an added grace, it happened to occur on the Solemnity of St. Joseph.
