A day in the life of an SSPX Seminarian

“A new video traces the daily life and full formation of a seminarian at the SSPX Seminary of St. Thomas Aquinas.

What is it like to live within the walls of a seminary? Let us follow a day in the life of a seminarian.

At 6:00am the bell is rung which breaks the great silence of the night. The seminarian begins the day with the morning prayers. After washing up, he descends to the chapel – vesting with the surplice signifies “putting on the new man” as says St. Paul.

At 6:30am, Prime, part of the Divine Office or prayer of the Church, is sung. After 25 minutes of meditation, the Angelus is led by the Rector.

Mass, the center of seminary life, follows: a low Mass on weekdays, and a High Mass on Sundays and feast days….”



May God bless these future priests and increase in them all priestly graces and virtues that they may offer the Holy Sacrifice with a pure heart, preach the True Catholic Faith with apostolic zeal and administer all of the Holy Sacraments with a burning love for Our Lord and His Church.
