Mount St. Mary's Seminary


Message from the Rector

Monsignor Andrew BakerMount St. Mary’s Seminary is truly a national seminary whose alumni have been serving as priests for many diocese across our great country. Since our humble beginnings in 1808 we have continued to thrive in partnership with bishops and religious superiors in preparing candidates for the priesthood who strive for holiness, are devoted to the Holy Eucharist and the Blessed Mother, and are totally loyal to the Gospel and the teaching of the Church.

Our fully accredited academic programs are taught with the perspective of forming the mind, heart and soul of future shepherds. It is truly an honor to be a part of such a sacred and important endeavor forming men to become priests.

– Monsignor Andrew R. Baker
