St. Michael’s Theological College (formerly St. Michael’s Seminary) is an institution of higher education dedicated to excellence in theological and scriptural studies leading to personal, ethical and spiritual formation. It is an affiliated institution of the University of the West Indies (UWI) and a member of the Caribbean Association of Theological Schools (CATS).
For more than forty years St. Michael’s Theological College (formerly St. Michael’s Seminary) was primarily commissioned to train Jamaican Priests. Since 1996, when the seminarians were transferred to the Regional Seminary of St. John Vianney and the Ugandan Martyrs in Trinidad, the main focus has shifted to the theological education and pastoral training of the laity. The significance of this present direction is certainly borne out in the Second Vatican Council’s emphasis on the vital importance of the laity’s role in the life and building up of the Church.
St. Michael’s remains steadfast in its commitment to facilitate the spread of the Gospel of Christ in accord with the Roman Catholic tradition through dedicated pursuit of Truth and Justice that informs right relationships and is realised in the ordering of society for the benefit and full flourishing of all.
