Sending Men up to the Mountain

Applicants to the Ordination Formation Program must be sponsored by a diocese or religious order before applying to study at Mount St. Mary's as a seminarian in the Ordination/M.Div. degree program. If you are considering whether God is calling you to serve as a priest, please contact your diocesan vocations office.

Dioceses with Men at the Mount

As the oldest independent Catholic Seminary in the United States we've partnered with many diocesan leaders to support the formation of holy men of the Church. Links to Vocations Offices can be found below:

Non-sponsored Lay Students

Mount St. Mary's Seminary welcomes applications from those interested, as lay students, to pursue the Master of Arts (Theology) degree program, with a concentration in either Church History, Moral Theology, Sacred Scripture, or Systematic Theology or for enrichment (not as part of a degree program).
