TRAINING BESIDE THE SAINTLY PRIEST OF ARS

INTERNATIONAL SEMINARY OF ARS

A SEMINARY SERVING DIOCESES

Opened in 1988, the International Seminary of Ars Welcomes men wishing to become priests from all over the world. Managed by the John Mary Vianney Society, its role is to form diocesan priests in the spirit of Saint John Mary Vianney and in keeping with the Church’s directives. The formation is centred on the very foundations of spiritual life, intellectual work, a strong communal life and a wide opening on the realities of the world and today’s Church. Pastoral formation progresses in connection with parishes and various movements.

Ars is definitely a blessed space for establishing a seminary. The saintly priest shows us the way to a complete surrender for the glory of God and for the world’s salvation. Here our Lord loves to intervene with very modest means but in an explicit way.

A TRAINING IN THE GRACE OF ARS

Supported by the undisputable grace of Ars and the charismatic endeavour of the SJMV, the seminary can excel in its mission.To live in the seminary, a true school of the Gospel, signifies living as followers of Christ as did the Apostles, to let oneself be initiated by Him to the service of the Father and Mankind. It is to live blessed by the Holy Spirit, to be with Christ, the Good Shepherd and train to provide a better sacerdotal service to the Church and to the world. To train for priesthood is to give a personal response to Christ‘s fundamental question: “Do you love me?”. This answer, for the future priest, can only be the total surrender of his life.
