At the heart of seminary formation is not an idea, an ideal, purpose, aspiration or plan, no matter how lofty or noble.
At the heart of formation is a person, and His name is Jesus.
He is at the center of everything a seminarian does, everything a seminarian is, everything a seminarian aspires to become.
At the heart of formation at St. John Vianney is something very simple: putting Jesus at the center of everything we do, everything that we are, everything we would like to be; all else is secondary.
