Buffalo seminary?


Does anyone out there have any knowledge about the quality of formation (intellectual, spiritual, etc.) at Christ the King Seminary in Buffalo, NY?

(Full disclosure: I am interested in knowing because I am discerning a vocation to the priesthood and was born in raised in the Diocese of Buffalo, but I am currently not living in that Diocese because of work. If I do eventually enter seminary, I am interested in moving back to Western New York to enter through the Diocese of Buffalo.)

Thank you in advance for your responses.


Here is a link to the Diocese. God Bless you on your journey.



May God show you the path he wishes you to follow.

The quality, or lack thereof, of a seminary should not be a marker on the road to discerning a vocation. I understand your worries I really do(I'm off to seminary myself in a few weeks) but going to the local seminary would give you relationships with future brother priests which will be invaluable in the future.

God Bless
