Spiritual Formation The Formation Program through seminary life at St. Mark’s might best be described as both a place and a process for men to explore the possibility that Christ might be inviting them to make a lifelong commitment to priesthood. This decision cannot be made alone. It is the decision of the individual but it is also the decision of the Church. The individual comes together with others who understand and share in that search in a directed way called the Formation Program. Information/Application Inquiries for additional information and/or to apply for seminary status may be directed to:
