S.F.C. is inspired by and imbued with the ecclesial spirit at the service of formation for diocesan seminary formators. It wants to be a response to the desires of the Holy See and the US Bishops in serving educators on “a journey of self-formation that helps them grow in priestly spirit,” offering them “human and spiritual tools for the tasks to be carried out” (Letter to Bishops and Religious Superiors of Cardinal Stella and Cardinal Braz de Aziz).
