St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, MN ( is overflowing with seminarians, and now faces a difficult decision to accommodate the plentiful harvest of seminarians.

Should a new seminary be built on land it owns in Virginia? Or should other options be explored?

Your promise will help us continue our mission of forming Catholic priests of All Time!

The seminary is asking the faithful to consider making a promise to donate money towards a new seminary. If enough generous promises are received, the seminary will proceed with the new building project: the decision is up to you!

You can respond by printing out and mailing (or faxing: 507-216-6243) the form in this PDF, or you can send them an e-mail answering their questions to:

Thank you in advance for your assistance with this important project!

❝The motu proprio Summorum Pontificum on the Latin Liturgy of July 7th 2007 is the fruit of a deep reflection by our Pope on the mission of the Church. IT IS NOT UP TO US, WHO WEAR ECCLESIASTICAL PURPLE AND RED, TO DRAW THIS INTO QUESTION, TO BE DISOBEDIENT AND MAKE THE MOTU PROPRIO VOID BY OUR OWN LITTLE, TITTLE RULES. Not even if they were made by a bishops conference. EVEN BISHOPS DO NOT HAVE THIS RIGHT. What the Holy Father says, has to be obeyed in the Church.

IF WE DO NOT FOLLOW THIS PRINCIPLE, WE WILL ALLOW OURSELVES TO BE USED AS INSTRUMENTS OF THE DEVIL, and nobody else. This will lead to discord in the Church, and slows down her mission. WE DO NOT HAVE THE TIME TO WASTE ON THIS. Else we behave like EMPEROR NERO, fiddling on his violin while Rome was burning. THE CHURCHES ARE EMPTYING, THERE ARE NO VOCATIONS, THE SEMINARIES ARE EMPTY. Priests become older and older, and young priests are scarce.❞
