Rector’s Message

Welcome to St. Augustine's Seminary of Toronto!

Fr. Edwin Gonsalves, RectorAs we begin the 106th year of formation at St. Augustine’s Seminary, it is an honor to introduce the seminary bulletin. Our primary mission is the formation and education of men for the priesthood. We also form men for the Permanent Diaconate. Through the Institute of Theology, we offer formation programs for lay men and women, to assist them in their pastoral ministry.

At St Augustine’s we continue to assess and improve our formation program. The current bulletin reflects the new document on priestly formation entitled, The Gift of Priestly Vocation. The seminarians enter each stage of formation with particular goals for each dimension of formation: human, spiritual, intellectual and pastoral.

St. Augustine’s Seminary is authorized by the Holy See’s Congregation of Catholic Education to confer the Baccalaureate of Sacred Theology. We are among the founding members of the Toronto School of Theology at the University of Toronto and our proud to continue our commitment to the pursuit of academic excellence in theological studies within a context of ecumenical dialogue.

As you open the pages of this bulletin, you will learn about our mission and various programs of study, to fit your plans to help you along your faith journey. As we live in the era of the New Evangelization, what better time than now to explore your faith and seek the Truth. Come and take the first step and allow us to guide and walk along your side through a blessed journey of faith that will impel you to continue God's work and follow in the footsteps of Christ.

At St Augustine’s Seminary, we renew our commitment to form men and women after the heart of Christ, who will be committed to addressing the spiritual and religious needs of the Church and the world. If you have any questions, we welcome the opportunity to speak with you!
