Seminaries

Notre Dame Seminary

Notre Dame Seminary (NDS) is located in New Orleans, LA and is used by the Diocese of Jackson for what is usually called 'major seminary' (or the last four years of theological studies before a man is ordained). Notre Dame also has a pre-theology program where students who already have already completed time in college may fulfill their study requirements in philosophy which is necessary before major seminary studies.

St. Joseph Seminary College

St. Joseph Seminary College (St. Ben's) is located in Covington, LA and is used by the Diocese of Jackson for what is usually called minor or 'college seminary'. Their program is designed primarily for men who are entering seminary directly after their senior year of high school, or who have completed little or no college studies. The major field of study there is philosophy, which is necessary to prepare the seminarian for theological studies in major seminary. They also have a pre-theology program where students who already have already completed time in college may fulfill their study requirements in philosophy which is necessary before major seminary studies.
