About St. Augustine's

SAS - Main Building

St. Augustine's Seminary was established in 1913 as one of the first major Seminaries established in English-speaking Canada for the training of diocesan priests. From the time it was founded, the Seminary has been a renewing source of study and reflection enabling men of faith to mature both in knowledge and commitment.


The specific apostolate of St. Augustine's is the preparation of candidates for ordained priesthood in the Catholic Church. The Program of priestly formation is guided by the official documents of the Roman Catholic Church: particularly by Vatican II's Decree on Priestly Formation, the Basic Norms for Priestly Formation of the Sacred Congregation for Catholic Education, The Program of Priestly Formation of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Apostolic Constitution Sapientia Christiana of Pope John Paul II and Pastores Dabo Vobis, the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation of Pope John Paul II, Ratio Fundamentalis Gift of Priestly Vocation and the Apostolic Constitution Veritatis Gaudium of Pope Francis, as well as the pertinent canons of the Code of Canon Law, and the various guidelines of ecclesiastical authorities.
