Bishop White Seminary, founded on August 4, 1954, provides
integral, initial formation for men discerning a vocation
to the diocesan priesthood, fosters the ongoing formation
of the clergy, and helps generate a culture of discernment
in the Diocese of Spokane.
Located right off Gonzaga's campus, Bishop White Seminary
is the only college seminary for training men into the
Catholic priesthood in Washington state. Most of the
seminarians are students at Gonzaga.
Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary is a Roman Catholic
professional and graduate theological institution dedicated
uniquely to the preparation of
seminarians thirty years of age and older responding to a call
to priestly ministry.
Our program fosters the human, spiritual, academic and pastoral
formation of its seminarians. We especially respect and utilize
the life experiences and accomplishments of our mature
seminarians, as we prepare them for priestly ministry.
The Seminary program is based on the Ratio Fundamentalis of the
Holy See, the Program of Priestly Formation Fifth Edition, of
the National Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Post-Synodal
Exhortation of Pope John Paul II, Pastores Dabo Vobis.
Prayer for Vocations
God our Father, send Your Holy Spirit to open my mind and
heart to your divine call to holiness. Grant me the
strength and courage to answer Jesus’ call to ‘come and
follow Him.’ Help me this day to place my life in your
hands and to trust in your divine presence in my life. Open
the hearts and minds of young men and women, so that a new
flowering of vocations to the priesthood and religious
life, may show forth the fidelity of Your love. Then all
may know Christ, the true “Light of the World” as the
gentle voice calling them to follow Him. Bless me with the
courage to follow you, to serve your people and to spread
the good news of the Gospel. Amen.
