Mount Angel Seminary
Mount Angel Abbey's Obedient Service to the Church
"Obeying the mandates of Holy Church, it has been our constant wish to provide our dear diocese with a clergy distinguished for its piety and learning. At our suggestion, therefore, the Reverend Benedictine fathers of Mount Angel have decided to open a seminary for the training of youth for the sublime dignity of the priesthood. Let us pray that Mount Angel may indeed be worthy of its name, and from its beautiful summit send forth angels in flesh and blood to promote, as not even angels in heaven can do, the glory of God on earth."
Most Rev. William H. Gross, CSsR
Archbishop of Oregon City
