St. Patrick’s Seminary & University is a Catholic educational community that forms priests of Jesus Christ who is teacher, priest, and shepherd.
St. Patrick’s Seminary & University seeks to serve the Roman Catholic Church in the ministerial context of the Pacific Region of the United States by forming priests whose lives are configured to the sacrifice of Jesus, rooted in His Word and Sacrament, and dedicated to serve the people of God with the pastoral charity of Christ.
Our Core Values
Our Core Values flow from the four dimensions of priestly formation and our Mission Statement, which presents Jesus Christ as Priest, Teacher, and Shepherd. Thus, of the seven values, the first is overarching, integrating all the values, and then of the remaining six, two correspond to each of these three Christological dimensions. These values are being integrated throughout the institution, not only linking our Mission Statement with the Program Learning Outcomes but also more broadly with the spiritual and human formation dimensions.
