It is important to me as President Rector that our seminarians learn the important role that women play in the church," says Father Richard Paperini, president rector of the seminary.

"We want to train our seminarians to be good, strong leaders but simultaneously we want them to learn to be collaborative leaders as well. By this I mean forgoing their own personal wants and desires for the good of the women and men they are sent to serve and recognizing that many of those women and men will work alongside the priests in ministry.”
