Let's build these young men a seminary!

Invest in our future priesthood. Make a gift to our seminary building fund!

  Your generous gift will establish the building structure for this much-needed college seminary in one of the fastest growing areas in the United States—and provide a faithful and dynamic academic, social, and spiritual life for our exploding number of future priests.

Each donation of $10,000 or more will receive your name, or the name of a loved one, engraved on a plaque to be displayed near the chapel for whom the seminarians will pray, and Masses will be offered.

If you would like to organize and host a fundraising dinner with a representative from the seminary in attendance, we would be most grateful. Please contact the rector to make arrangements.

A College Seminary in the Diocese of Charlotte, in collaboration with Belmont Abbey College, to serve the rapidly expanding need for priests as a result the exponential growth in the Church in the South. Its purpose is to form young men in light of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition into holy priests who are well-balanced, well-educated, and capable of confronting the difficulties facing people of faith in the twenty-first century, and who are willing to lead them to a personal love for Jesus Christ in constant fidelity to the teachings of the Catholic Church.


Our goal in Phase One will house twenty seminarians (expandable to fifty seminarians in Phase Two). It will provide them with individual living quarters, a small refectory, administration offices, a research room, faculty rooms, and a small, temporary chapel.
