The mission of Theological College is the formation of priests after the heart of Christ. In unity with the US Bishops and in affiliation with The Catholic University of America, seminarians are prepared for the diocesan priesthood.


Founded in 1917, Theological College is the nation’s seminary. Its rich history is traced from the founding of the Society of St. Sulpice, to TC’s beginnings as a missionary seminary, to present day.
