To Our Catholic Community,

It is a great honor and privilege for me to serve as the 17th President and Rector of St. Patrick's Seminary & University community.  We are dedicated to the mission of forming priests to serve Dioceses across the Western United States and beyond.  We have a rich tradition of priestly formation that has benefitted Catholics for over 118 years—and we will continue to build upon that strong foundation long into the future.

St. Patrick’s is blessed with a beautiful campus, a prayerful atmosphere and committed staff who passionately support the mission of our seminary.  Our faculty includes respected scholars and theologians of national and international standing, as well as highly experienced diocesan priests and teachers.  They integrate the highest academic standards with practical experience and pastoral training.  

We welcome the collaboration and support of the greater Catholic community with open arms and hearts, as we educate and form the next generation of priests.  I am grateful for your continued support of our mission and ask that you keep me and our ministry in your prayers as I keep you in mine.

Yours in Christ,

Rev. George E. Schultze, SJ
