Pontifical College Josephinum

Since the Josephinum was founded in 1888, zealous young men eager to grow in holiness and labor for the salvation of souls have been received as seminarians at the Pontifical College Josephinum.

Master's Programmes



The Pontifical College Josephinum owes its existence to the vision of a zealous priest, Msgr. John Joseph Jessing (1836-1899), and to the generosity of many throughout the United States who helped him carry out his dream of preparing priests to serve Catholics in America.
