Our Mission

Founded in 1959 by Archbishop Coleman Carroll (the first bishop of the Archdiocese of Miami), Saint John Vianney College Seminary aims to form men for the diocesan priesthood by focusing on the pillars of formation: human, spiritual, pastoral, and academic. In accordance with the cultural makeup of Southern Florida, the seminary bills itself as bilingual, allowing seminarians the opportunity to interact, pray, and socialize in both Spanish and English.
