Tom_DalyOn this St. Patrick's Day, the Seminary Community is proud to congratulate an alumnus and Bishop-Elect Thomas Daly, a priest of the Archdiocese of San Francisco and vocations director, who has been chosen to become the first Auxiliary Bishop of San Jose, California.

Pope Benedict XVI's Apostolic Nuncio to the U.S., Archbishop Pietro Sambi, made the Pope's choice public on March 16. The 50-year-old bishop-designate is currently the president of Marin Catholic High School in Kentfield, and the Director of Vocations for the Archdiocese of San Francisco.


Blessings to all on this glorious feast of our patron saint!

SIMG_1237t. Patrick's Seminary & University is following the lead of this great apostle to Ireland.

The Seminary does this by preparing future priests and renewing those in the field to bring the Gospel to the people in our own missionary territories - at home, at school, in the workplace, and anywhere the challenging and healing touch of the Lord is needed.
