A Welcoming Message
The Presiding Bishop for the Evangelical Catholic Church


On behalf of the Evangelical Catholic Church, I welcome you to Saint John the Evangelist Seminary. This on-line seminary represents our unconditional commitment to provide a program of Academic Formation for candidates preparing for the priesthood within the Autocephaleous Catholic movement and for clergy seeking an opportunity for continuing education.

Our primary purpose is the preparation of candidates for ordained priesthood.  This preparation for pastoral leadership embraces and promotes academic, human, pastoral, and spiritual formation--all necessary traits in their vocation as an ordained minister of the Gospel.

We are confident that you will recognize and concur that each of the elements comprising our curriculum and academic standards is consistent with the highest expectations of the Church in fulfilling its pastoral and sacramental commitment to the People of God.

Life is truly "The Way of The Pilgrim."  It is our story. Our hope-filled seeking evokes the longing of every pilgrim heart: to find God, since we are all pilgrims journeying to the Father. Indeed our entire life is a journey. From the moment we were conceived, when we were born into this world and took our first breath, our lives have been directed to God the Father.

This is also our story at Saint John the Evangelist Seminary. Those that come to us are on a journey, discerning God's call for them. Some will be ordained priests, others not, but all will come to know God more intimately than ever before. Why not be one of them?  "Come and see!" says the Lord Our God. 

Feel free to explore all that our seminary has to offer. If you think Saint John the Evangelist Seminary is the place for you, or if you would like more information about our programs, please contact us.

On behalf of our seminary community, I remain


Respectfully Yours in Christ
