Michael's Seminary) is an institution of
higher education dedicated to excellence in
theological and scriptural studies leading
to personal, ethical and spiritual
formation. It is an affiliated
institution of the University of the West
Indies (UWI) and a member of the Caribbean
Association of Theological Schools (CATS).
For more than
forty years St. Michaelís Theological
College (formerly St. Michaelís
Seminary) was primarily commissioned to
train Jamaican Priests. Since 1996, when the
seminarians were transferred to the Regional
Seminary of St. John Vianney and the Ugandan
Martyrs in Trinidad, the main focus has
shifted to the theological education and
pastoral training of the laity. The
significance of this present direction is
certainly borne out in the Second Vatican
Councilís emphasis on the vital importance
of the laityís role in the life and
building up of the Church.
remains steadfast in its commitment to
facilitate the spread of the Gospel of
Christ in accord with the Roman Catholic
tradition through dedicated pursuit of Truth
and Justice that informs right relationships
and is realised in the ordering of society
for the benefit and full flourishing of all.
