The Redemptoris Mater Missionary Seminary of the Archdiocese of Toronto
What are the Redemptoris
Mater Missionary Seminaries?
They are a new reality in the Church, and there are currently 64 of them established
around the world. The men who enter these seminaries come from all over the world,
offering themselves for the service of the Church and the society in which they
live. The priests formed in these diocesan seminaries are both diocesan
and missionary. This means that, at the discretion of their Bishop, and according to the needs of the Church, they will fulfill their ministry in the diocese to which the seminary belongs or be sent anywhere
in the world.
Seminarians need time and preparation so that they may willingly fulfill God's call to the priesthood.
Therefore, the Archdiocese of Toronto opened a missionary seminary in order to welcome these new vocations that are so greatly
needed in our society today. On June 21, 1999, His Eminence, Aloysius Cardinal Ambrozic, officially founded a Redemptoris Mater Missionary Seminary (RMMS) for the Archdiocese
of Toronto. For the time being, the RMMS of Toronto shares the premises of St. Augustine's Seminary in Scarborough.
The seminarians at the RMMS of Toronto first undertake the study of English as a second
language. They then pursue philosophical studies at St. Philip's Seminary and theological studies at St. Augustine's Seminary in the Toronto School of
sponsor the seminarians,
RMMS relies on the generous donations of benefactors, who share in and support this work
of God for the Church. As a non-profit charitable organization, the Seminary issues income tax receipts to benefactors
and donors, upon request.
The RMMS is located
2661 Kington Road, Scarborough, Ontario.
