The purpose of the Society of St. Pius X is “the priesthood and all that pertains to it, and nothing but what concerns it” (Statutes). This includes all the works necessary for the formation of candidates to the priesthood, which takes place in our international seminaries.
During six years of intense liturgical life, philosophical, theological, and pastoral studies, community life, and spiritual direction, the future priests advance towards the altar and prepare themselves for a lifetime apostolate at the service of the Church and the souls.
