What is St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary?

St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary is a house of studies of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), established in the United States in 1973, for the formation of Roman Catholic priests according to the traditional teaching of the Church.

The word “seminary” comes from the Latin word “seminarium” meaning “seed bed.” A seminary is a place where a vocation to the priesthood develops, from the original call that led the young man to enter the seminary, to its full growth at his priestly ordination.
