About Us

Borromeo Seal Black and White SizedBorromeo Seminary is a house of formation in the Diocese of Cleveland.  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, where they take most of their classes as they work toward their undergraduate degree.

Borromeo Seminary’s faculty members are adjunct faculty of John Carroll University.  They teach certain philosophy and religious studies classes required by the Program of Priestly Formation at the seminary.

Formation Program

The Program of Priestly Formation is the guiding document issued by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and calls for four pillars of formation:  human,  intellectual, pastoral, and spiritual.  These four pillars are emphasized in the formation of our students as they discern their call to priestly ministry.
