Mount Angel Seminary

Yes! I want to support our future priests!

Here at Mount Angel Abbey, God has asked us to educate and form men for the priesthood, to awaken in them the heart and mind of Jesus Christ. It is a responsibility we have joyfully carried since the seminary was first established in 1889.

We monks are strongly tied to the seminary as its quiet, spiritual anchor. According to our talent and assignment, we accompany the seminarians in:

  • Liturgy and prayer
  • Ministry and parish work
  • Spiritual direction
  • Education in the classroom
  • Spiritual direction
  • Daily witness of our lives given entirely for Christ and his people

You are a necessary partner in the beauty of this calling. To walk this pilgrim path together with servant hearts, we need each other.

We seek to keep the cost of seminary formation affordable for our dioceses, which means we absorb many of the fixed annual costs – such as facility maintenance, faculty and staff salaries, residence hall upkeep, and the constant need for improved technology.


Will you help?

Join us in the Circle of Prayer

If you are inspired by the calling of our seminarians to serve God and the people of God, please join us in the Circle of Prayer! Send your prayer intentions to to be especially included in the prayers of our seminarians. And if you feel a particular closeness to our seminarians on the 26th of each month, it may be because they pray for all our benefactors on that date. We hope you truly feel our gratitude. We all know their formation would not be possible without you!
