- We are St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary, a Roman Catholic seminary located in Winona Minnesota since 1988. We are one of five international seminaries of the Society of St. Pius X. Our mission is to form priests and spread the Truth throughout the world to all the people that we are able to reach.
The formation is not merely academic, but a transformation of the young man into a living and breathing example of Faith, an unfaltering source of Hope, and radiating Love. He will stand in the midst of the world as a pillar of strength, a cooling fountain of peace and doctrine for nourishment, and a light shining in the darkness.
The priests who have come from our seminary reach out into the world to touch the peoples of every culture. We have reached out to South Africa, Poland, England, Australia, Mexico, South America, and the Dominican Republic, among others. The Society of St. Pius X in general is located in over 35 countries and is daily growing in number.
We pass on what has been given to us. We hold to the traditional philosophy and theology that have been handed down through the ages. We express the beauty of these beliefs in our worship that is equally beautiful. This centuries old liturgy we pass on to thousands of men, women and children. We see it as a sacred reality, an expression of the Truth, and freely give it to anyone we come into contact with.
Our impact penetrates into the social atmosphere by humanitarian aid and education. As our founder was a missionary in Africa for many years, we want to impact each person we contact with a missionary spirit. A spirit that gives itself whole heartedly for others.
