Welcome to the website of the Seminary of the Good Shepherd

The Seminary is the place where young men, who desire to be priests, come for formation. In this website, you will be able to listen to the stories of some of the seminarians. You will notice that they come from many different backgrounds and they express many different reasons for coming. You will also be able to read about the formation program, which lasts seven years and includes human, spiritual, pastoral and academic dimensions.

Ultimately it is God who calls a man to the priesthood and we respond to God with love. The love of God is the foundation of any priestly vocation. So, at the Seminary, we seek to produce men who are strong in faith and love: such men can truly be shepherds after the heart of God.

I hope you enjoy looking through our website. Please remember us in your prayers.

Yours sincerely,

Fr Danny Meagher

A Day in the Life of a Seminarian

People often ask me about what modern seminary training entails. The answer is complex, having been recently ordained, I have been able to reflect on the formation I received over the past five and a half years, and how it has equipped me for my future ministry.
