St. Augustine's Seminary of Toronto

Priestly Formation Program

Admission Procedures

*Note: St. Augustine's Seminary accepts candidates from the U.S.A. and Canada.

A candidate for ordination to the priesthood must contact the Bishop or Vocation Director of the diocese of sponsorship. A candidate will not be reviewed for admission by St. Augustine’s Seminary without being approved by a diocese. Those wishing to pursue their vocation through a religious order will only be admitted to the Seminary after having been approved and sponsored by the Order.

Admission interviews begin in the month of May. We need to receive all of the necessary application documents at least two weeks prior to the interview. Admission forms are to be obtained through the Vocations Office of the candidate’s diocese.
