The mission of Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary is to form servant-leaders after the heart of Jesus Christ, for the Church of today and tomorrow.  Joan and Dan have tirelessly given of their time, talents, and energy to enrich the Church and the community ~ offering us an outstanding example of faith-filled servant leadership. Like Saint Charles Borromeo, who lived a life of service and humility, the Hilfertys embody these qualities in their own lives.
