Welcome

Welcome to the official site of the Seminary Formation Council (S.F.C.).

The S.F.C. has developed a two-year “Certificate in Seminary Formation for Missionary Discipleship” for those who serve in diocesan seminary formation, especially in the external forum: formation advisors, teaching faculty, administrative faculty, and vocation directors. Spiritual direction faculty are also welcome.

The two-year “Certificate in Seminary Formation for Missionary Discipleship” is offered in two formats. In the first, all modules are attended in-person at the St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary in Boynton Beach, Florida. The second format is a hybrid of virtual and in-person modules. Find more information about the hybrid option here

This certificate is a response to the great need for a comprehensive program to form seminary personnel.

We would like to publicly acknowledge that the SFC Certificate is being aided by funds from Our Sunday Visitor.
