The Seminary A Place of "Interiority...Mission...Dialogue"
The Seminary of the Immaculate Conception
Is the Roman Catholic center of theological education and pastoral and spiritual formation on Long Island
Established in 1930 for the formation of men to the priesthood, it maintains this responsibility as its primary work. Responding to the needs of the local Church after Vatican II, it also serves men and women, lay and religious, preparing to assume ministerial roles within the Church and those who desire to deepen their knowledge of the Christian tradition and their living of the Christian life in the world. The Seminary offers Master's degrees in Theology and Divinity, and a Doctoral degree in Ministry. Through all its programs, the Seminary intends to foster a dynamic, collaborative relationship between ordained and non-ordained ministries in the Church and to contribute to the ongoing dialogue between the Christian tradition and contemporary culture.
