Welcome to Borromeo Seminary!
Borromeo Seminary is a house of formation serving the Diocese of Cleveland, Diocese of Youngstown, the Capuchin Franciscan Province of Saint Augustine, and the Blessed Sacrament Community. It is located at the Center for Pastoral Leadership in Wickliffe, Ohio. Men who have been accepted into the Borromeo Seminary program live at the seminary and commute to John Carroll University as they work toward their undergraduate degree.
LETTER FROM THE RECTOR – FALL 2020
Borromeo Seminary will resume formation and classes beginning on Friday, August 28. While we await guidelines from the State of Ohio to inform our plans, we welcome you back in the safest possible way that adheres to social and physical distancing requirements. Our focus remains on creating a healthy formational community, centered in Jesus Christ, that allows for a prayerful place of vocational discernment. As St. John Paul II stated in his encyclical Pastores dabo vobis, the seminary community is “the essential formational matrix for those preparing for ordained ministry, which itself ‘has radical communitarian form and can only be carried out as a collective work” (#17).

This opportunity to experience the awesome Borromeo community is always enjoyable and prayerful. Contact the Vocation Office for upcoming dates.
