The (M. Div.) Master of Divinity is a professional degree designed for men preparing to be ordained to the Catholic Priesthood or permanent Diaconate. Successful completion of the Master of Divinity program attests to the recipient’s competency for exercising priestly ministry gained from a thorough grounding in Sacred Scripture, Dogmatic and Moral Theology, Spiritual and Pastoral Theology, Canon Law, Liturgy, Homiletics and Church History.
It is a special aim of Holy Apostles Seminary to provide priestly education in the Catholic spirit. This means not only that Catholic values inform all our instruction and formation work, but also that these same values are reflected in the concern to provide personal and spiritual formation by focusing on integrating the Gospel ideals into daily life. The life of the seminary is centered on the Eucharist, especially daily Mass; it is nourished by the Liturgy of the Hours and times of personal prayer.
The traditions of seminary life here encourage Eucharistic worship, frequent reception of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, devotion to Mary, love for the Church, respect for human life, concern for the poor and a commitment to a priestly life of sacrifice and service.
