The Theology Division of Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary shares the vision and philosophy of the overall Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary Formation Program and builds upon the foundations of the College Division and Pre-Theology Programs.  All seminarians enrolled in the Theologate have been admitted to Candidacy for Holy Orders and as such are engaged in a period of proximate preparation for ordination to the Diaconate and the Priesthood.

Through its Master of Divinity Degree Program, the Theology Division has as its primary purpose the four-fold formation (human, spiritual, intellectual, and pastoral) of potential candidates for priesthood of Jesus Christ in the Roman Catholic Church. Its guiding focus is the example of the one Priest, Jesus Christ, who came “not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for the many” (Mark 10:45).
