About

History

The Oblate School of Theology is an enduring, good fruit from that mission, founded more than one hundred years ago, as the San Antonio Philosophical and Theological Seminary. The school’s initial goal and mission was to educate young men to serve as Oblate missionaries in Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mexico and the Philippines.
