The institution assumes, as its specific responsibility, the academic, spiritual, pastoral and human formation of college seminarians within a bilingual (English-Spanish) and multicultural setting.The college seminary is also committed to provide academic opportunities, both on campus and online, for laity and others who may be enriched by its services.”
