Welcome to the home of St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary on the World Wide Web. Our seminary, located in Boynton Beach, Florida, is owned by the 7 Dioceses of the Province of Florida.
Since the seminary's foundation in 1963, over 600 priests have been formed and gone on to serve in parishes throughout the Southeast and the Caribbean. Preparing candidates in the four dimensions of priestly formation (human, spiritual, academic, and pastoral) is our expertise and primary mission at St. Vincent de Paul. We also foster a bilingual and multicultural environment in recognition of the growing Hispanic presence in the United States. St. Vincent is the only bilingual theologate in the country.
The seminary is a free-standing graduate/professional school of theology offering the M.Div. and MATS degrees. The seminary is secondarily committed to providing continuing education for clergy, religious and the lay faithful. I encourage you to visit this site often and sign up for our electronic newsletter so that you can stay current regarding the activities and events of our community.
Should your travels bring you to the Boynton Beach area during the academic year, please consider attending our 12:15 p.m. Wednesday Mass with our seminarians. I also ask that you remember the seminary and our important work in your prayers, and if you are able please prayerfully consider supporting our mission through a charitable donation.
On behalf of our seminarians, our faculty, and our staff, thank you for your interest in St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary. God bless you.
Msgr. David L. Toups, S.T.D.
