St. Joseph College Seminary
Answering the Call of Christ
When Christ first called His Apostles, He did so internally and externally. Internally, He prepared them by grace to desire something more. Internally, He cultivated that longing until the time in which He would encounter them externally. There is no other explanation for the immediacy of their response, to drop their nets and follow Him. For three years they lived in His company. It was the first seminary. St. Joseph College Seminary is similarly at Christ’s service, and the pattern of Christ’s action is the same. Men come to us who have been altered interiorly by grace, moved externally by the support of the Church, and seek to live in His company. They seek to be friends of Christ by His election. Thank you for your support of this mission.
